|With the assembly of the scale prototype (required to test the balance of all the components), we have now completed phase one. As you can see for yourself, the project has evolved quite a bit from the original model shown in the teaser video.
In addition to being twice the size of its prototype, the actual piece will also feature
a metal frame around the dragonflies and a pattern of wires, weaved on their
bodies and wings, to add stability to such a delicate composition. The final assembly of Lithic Dragonfly will be performed by students and professors of the Politecnico di Bari University, during the workshop that will take place in our factory this coming June (below you can see the flier promoting this event).
