A CHALLENGE MADE TO MEASURE

Metalltech has produced the metal elements of the bold golden vault covering the new Department of Islamic Art at the Louvre. This space, opened in September 2012, houses the precious collection owned by the Museum.


ARCHITECTURE, CULTURE, ART AND CIVILISATION

Designed by the architects Mario Bellini and Rudy Ricciotti, the distinguishing feature ofthe project is its undulating,semi-transparent surface that allows the forms of islamic art to blend with the museum’s classical seventeenth century façades.

The project sprang from an original idea for a material inspired bythe chain mail worn by medieval knights.


THE METALLTECH FACTOR

The prestigious challenge was won thanks both to the ability of
Metalltech to interpret the project requirements and to the well-established collaboration with the companies under the LONGHI GROUP trademark.

Fils and Italfim, renowned international manufacturers of expanded metal for architectural purposes, provided their know-how in order to develop the innovative materials.

ARCHITETTURA, CULTURA, ARTE E CIVILTÀ.
Il progetto, firmato dagliarchitetti Mario Bellini e Rudy Ricciotti, è fortemente caratterizzato dalla fluttuantesuperficie ondulata e semitrasparente, concepita per fare coesistere le forme caratte-ristiche dell’arte islamica e il contesto classico settecentesco del museo.Nasce dall‘idea originale di un materiale ispirato alla cotta di maglia metallica dei ca-valieri del medioevo.
IL FATTORE METALLTECH.
La prestigiosa sfida è stata vinta grazie alla capacitàdell’azienda Metalltech di interpretare le esigenze espresse dalla progettazione e allaconsolidata sinergia con le società del marchio LONGHIGROUP.Fils e Italfim, affermate realtà internazionali nel settore delle reti stirate per l’architet-tura, hanno supportato con il loro knowhow lo sviluppo degli innovativi materiali.
