The name in Milanese dialect means "object that is useful just to take the dust". A clear homage to Bruno Munari's research on Travel Sculptures from the 1950s, the project acts as an aesthetic variant thanks to the production process which combines marbled papers with laser cutting technology. The result is a series of masks and totems that are light by definition - both in terms of purpose and specific weight - and they imitate the solidity of marble through textures from the nineteenth century tradition.
