Graduated food bowl used as scale if immersed in water: the depth of immersion indicates the weight of the content.

White glazed ceramic.


The Buoyancy
‹‹A body immersed (totally or partially) in a fluid receives a vertical boost called buoyancy (bottom-up) of intensity equal to the weight of a mass of fluid of shape and volume equal to the submerged part of the body. The point of application of buoyancy, called center of thrust, is on the same line as the pressure gradient which would be the center of mass of the portion of fluid that would occupy the space actually occupied by the immersed part of the body.››

Fisica applicata /
To experience daily actions.

Applied Physics in general is based on physical sciences fundamental truths and most important concepts, but is especially interested in the application of these scientific principles in practical systems. Applied Physics for design has led to direct design solutions particularly tangible and useful, allowing to transform everyday objects in scientific instrumentation. Vases, bowls, shakers become instruments of direct knowledge without losing their original function; form, closely connected to function, stimulates the user’s curiosity and interactivity. As the object becomes  intellectually stimulating, it triggers the concept of an enjoyable object; a collection of objects for different uses share a common language.
