It's a region in space.
Scattered disc is the name given to a collection of small objects in the vastness of the solar system, moving in wild elliptical orbits.

And in the dark, many are just floating around.

The studio operates in the field of objects design, technology research and architecture, sometimes.
We are concerned with fabrication processes, geometry, traditional crafts, mechanical components and non business model based projects.

We do believe in insecurity and doubt, in multiple readings of a phenomenon, in temporary conclusions.

SCATTERED Disc Objects is Bahar Pourmoghadam and Marco Cattivelli.

Currently based in front of a beautiful garden in Piacenza.

CARBONARI is a lightweight, mono-material table that can be easily disassembled for transportation and storage. The table was originally developed to furnish the attic of Luigi Caccia Dominoni’s building, located in Piazza Carbonari 2, Milano. Find out more here.

The design explores the mechanical and aesthetic properties of aluminum in an exercise of lightness and disguise.

The table can be dismantled without any tools in seconds: when not in use, the single parts can be collected to take up as little space as possible, making it also ideal for trips. The object is entirely made of aluminum alloys, except legs bolts.

All components are mechanically fixed, each part can be replaced in case of damage.

Furthermore, the mechanical and aesthetic properties of high-performance aluminum alloys allowed the required lightness, as the top is only 4 mm thick and the standard module measures 90 x 170 cm.

Each of the two parts of the top is folded to ensure excellent fastening and increased structural strength.

All the parts are hand-orbited to provide a scratch-resistant, restorable brushed surface. The monomateriality simplifies the disposal and recycling of metal, although it is designed to last.

The monomateriality, the replacement of individual parts and the possibility of restoring the surfaces, are part of a broader research of the studio, which proposes a critical approach to sustainability problems.

We think that research - aesthetic research included - can generate value and produce objects that last a lifetime or more.

The table is suitable for indoor and outdoor: it is currently available in natural aluminum finish, and in a powder coated version in many colors (we like it black), altough we can customize sizes and finishes.
