Slow Ski

A new way to live mountains

Slow Ski is the new wave of skiing: an invitation to enjoy ski and snow with ease and slowness, enjoyng panoramics views and natural rhythms.
Slow Ski is the praise of the winter holiday to be spent without the frenzy of downhill skiing and incredible performances. This is a new approach to skiing, more relaxing, more user-friendly: in some ski resorts have already decided to equip the paths in this direction, providing them with comfortable benches and rest areas, to admire the surrounding views and to stop to breathe deeply, snow in sync with nature and embracing. The slow descent from the ski slopes is not taking speed on specific routes.
The trend, however, embraces more than one area and seems to know more fans of the genre:
it is enough to mention the slow food culture to realize that in these frenetic times, on vacation you try just relaxing and find peace.
In an expression: slow ski.

Slow ski allows to enjoy the mountains in a more complete way

Rapid prototyping

The speed of the new technologies of industrial production

Rapid prototyping is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The first techniques for rapid prototyping became available in the late 1980s and were used to produce models and prototype parts. Today, they are used for a much wider range of applications and are even used to manufacture production-quality parts in relatively small numbers. Some sculptors use the technology to produce complex shapes for fine arts exhibitions.

Objects produced by rapid prototype process.

Patrick Jouin designed some solid stereolitography furniture a while ago. Stereolitography is a rapid prototyping technique and gaining popularity day by day.
