Joe Colombo 2010

Colombo’s project called for the use of an original axial assembly system that was particularly robust, concealed by a shock absorber made of resin that made a doorstop superfluous. The system was recognised as an invention and patented.



BETA, 2010

The twofold function was integrated in a slender and futuristic shape in the model Paracolpi Alfa.
