Horizons is a reflection on Planetary Geology, a science discipline concerned with the geology and internal structure of celestial bodies such as planets and their moons.
The geo prefix typically indicates topics of or relating to our planet Earth, and this project aims to illustrate – through abstraction – how similar the geomorphologies of other planets can be. Finally surprising us with an unexpected softness, a completely human pleasure.
The shapes of the reliefs derive from three-dimensional files of some areas of the Italian Alps, made more abstract and mixed with other planetary geologies.
The vertical sides are an abstract representation of typical geological stratigraphies of the solar system planets, where the top surface is soft Velvet, the lower part is recycled soft polyurethane foam, covered with a thin layer of soft rubber mixed with stone powder and real soils which make the colors and textures always unique and completely organic.
