LIM (Less Is More, labor LIMe), born from the collaboration of pba, FRANKLIN AZZI DESIGN and designer Dimitri Sautier, reinterprets the industrial levers aesthetic codes, in particular the emergency check valve through a formal simplification of the form dear to the architect Franklin Azzi. The geometry of LIM thus makes it become an object of common use, a tool that seems the hand’s extension. The outcome is an elementary shape, with sharp aesthetic, where the architect keeps only the “strictly necessary”.
"Sometimes objects originate through subtraction. These are the ones which reveal our momentary intent of lightness. A will to fly without going too far. LIM is a point in continuous fluxes. The stainless steel is shaped according to moderation. Sight and the touch are invited to identify and divide the useful from what is unessential. The moment of beauty hinges on subtraction. Less is more, nothing in excess, great is the restraint".
