Inspired by the Leonardesque knots also known as “vinciani knots” FILUM is the first product of its kind made completely through “Direct Metal Laser Sintering” which consists in fusing Titanium powder by means of a powerful carbon dioxide laser.
Complex circular geometrical interlacing weaves create this masterpiece, the result of the highest level of construction engineering. The Leonardo’s knots were inspired by the use of flexible twigs of red willows trees, typical of the town of origin of the artist and scientist, to weave baskets or tie the vines. These weaves then became a sort of signature, a personal emblem that he used everywhere in his jewellery designs, hairstyles, accessories, and in the decoration of the Hall of the Axes in the Castello Sforzesco.
