Cruise Ship Interiors Expo exhibitor Rossin was founded in northeast Italy in 1964, and since has expanded to an international company, playing host to respected designers such as Archirivolto, JOI-Design, and Christian Werner. In this guest article, Rossin introduces rail by Archirivolto, a curved modular seating system – find out more below.

RossinIn recent times we have realised how important it is to respect and protect the environment. That is why we at rossin have decided to commit ourselves keeping an eye to the future and to future generations. In our private lives we have already acted for some years now to protect the environment with a conscious and respectful attitude; we believe that nowadays, companies should provide a good example.

With this idea in mind, we are launching the new model rail, designed by Archirivolto in an eco-sustainable and local manner.

Rossin rail

Rossin rail is a new model aimed primarily at the hospitality sector. Aesthetics and functionality in optimal balance, thanks to its modularity, make for a high-quality product. The quality of our products makes them durable, long-lasting, and therefore sustainable. With rail, we are also sustainable in production at our factory in North Tyrol, which uses hydroelectric power and pellet heating, and outputs low CO2 emissions.

In this way, we try to be as neutral as possible and have as little impact as possible on the environment. In addition, the materials and components used for our new rail model are fully recyclable because they can be sorted for disposal according to the “cradle-to-cradle” philosophy.

Finally, rail can be upholstered either with 100% locally produced wool or with fabrics made from recycled yarns offering in this way a truly sustainable product.

Archirivolto was founded in 1983 by Claudio Dondoli and Marco Pocci as an industrial planning, design and architecture studio.

While studying Architecture in Florence, Claudio and Marco started an experimental theatre group together with some friends. When they decided to focus their joint efforts on design, their interest in theatre strongly influenced the set-up of their new studio: creativity, sense of reality, respect and attention for the public.

For Pocci+Dondoli design is beauty, harmony and freedom and cannot be bound by strict, pre-established rules, nor can it be the privilege of a social or cultural elite.

One of the studio’s principles is the research on materials and processing to achieve the best value for money. Preferred materials such as aluminium, plastic and leather gain nobility and elegance through sophisticated processing.

During the last years, the studio has received more and more requests from international clients who appreciate the professionalism of the team and the quality of the products.

At the same time, Pocci+Dondoli have been leading the reconstruction of a Tuscan hamlet where they have started a fine wine production.
