"Every mechanical instrument produces, as a by-product of its operation, a noise, a vibration sustained and propagated by an elastic medium. Noises, sounds and voices are perceptive distinctions, machines speak but you need to know their voice to understand what they say. Work instruments emit sounds that speak of their age, the time that has passed since they were new; they warn when they work too hard or rhythmically confirm they are functioning correctly. We've tried to collect these noises, distinguish sounds and recognize voices. The goal is to give them importance and to assign them a form. The sound is the starting point, the form is the vehicle, the voice is the result. The message, let’s not get confused, could be hidden everywhere in the project: in the shapes, in surfaces, in colours or in the overall experience."
