Scaffsystem reinterprets the languages of architecture with “Structura”
For decades steelworks have only been associated with huge infrastructural works. Nowadays things are changing at last, as a growing number of technicians and designers are using steel for their own projects in residential and industrial building sectors. Within this dynamic context, Scaffsystem becomes an all-round partner for architects, engineers, technicians providing them with its bespoke and modular steel solutions, based upon the use of light cold-formed profiled beams of “STRUCTURA” line, as presented in Milan, Italy, on the occasion of Inhabits – Milano Design Village from April 17-22, 2018. Scaffsystem will present to the public its project called “The Light Delight”, a building with steel load-bearing structure which will be used as a lounge area where media partners and International professionals will work, relax and at the same time enjoy the various construction methods and solutions introduced by Scaffsystem. “Structura” derives from a fruitful combination of design, architecture and engineering and allows the cost-effective and fast construction of mezzanines, canopies, industrial buildings, bungalow, residential buildings and special projects such as roof-truss, booths and similar installations.
Through the use of dry construction methods, steel is becoming more and more a leading partner for building professionals and companies, thanks to its mechanical and technological properties when producing load-bearing structures to be combined with sustainable materials. A wide range of energy-saving solutions is available for both residential and commercial or industrial sectors, as designers and technicians can also retain their creativity in shaping projects and installations and clients can be satisfied with bespoke answers to their needs.
This innovative construction method allows users to go beyond the traditional carpentry profiles and the traditional construction techniques based upon concrete and its limits on sites, as it is focused on a very simple mechanical process: all the components are produced off-site, while on site you only need to assemble them with dry methods and bolted connections, also as far as cladding are concerned.
The most important advantages of this construction system are the following ones:
- STRUCTURAL LIGHTNESS (fit for anti-seismic design);
- HUGE CLEAR SPANS;
- EASY ASSEMBLY AND DISMANTLING;
- PRACTICAL AND EASY MAINTENANCE;
- EASY INTEGRATION WITH PIPES, CABLES, ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT THANKS TO PERFORATED PROFILED BEAMS;
- LONG DURATION OF THE STRUCTURES;
- ARCHITECTURAL QUALITY;
Basically, Scaffsystem provides a Meccano system, where modularity and aesthetical values are preserved and extremely valued. Moreover, it turns out to be a live configuration thanks to a constant research and development activity, just as live as home and office spaces should be.
“The Light Delight “ 2018 project is then completed by Officine Tamborrino design, a dedicated and new brand of Scaffsystem group that expresses the specific values of innovation, lightness, consistency as described by the great writer Italo Calvino and already characterizing the above-mentioned construction method.
Officine Tamborrino will provide all the furniture items of the Press & Professional Lunge area and will make it a vital workplace for fruitful exchanges. Officine Tamborrino collection derives from steel to express a new aesthetical and design sensibility inspired by the simplicity and minimalism of the Italian design, as it combines the most up-to-date technology and the passion for details to provide unique and sustainable special furniture items to its public.
