Opus Motus BrickBreak, the most hypnotic of the rotating marble inlays created by Raffaello Galiotto in cooperation with Lithos Design, had already found great success during its first presentation in 2013 and can now be set in motion again at the 2017 Milan Design Week.
Lithos Design will show his gaudy mechanical vertical spinning top at “Casa WWTS”, together with some of the most prestigious Italian design brands. This exhibition of objects and design products is organized by WWTS, Lithos Design’s partner for the Russian markets, and takes place at Palazzo dei Giureconsulti in Milan from April 4 to 8, 2017.
Behind the conception of Opus Motus there are many types of marble, among the most prestigious and charming, and a study on the natural colors of stone combined with movement. All the colours and geometric structures used were purpose-designed based on the RGB additive model according to specific optical and chromatic effects.
The result: six gaudy mechanical vertical spinning tops featuring an inlaid marble circle that, when activated by a lever, begins to spin progressively faster and the colours of nature merge together.
