DRAWING THE SUN,
DESIGNING THE SUN
DESIGNING THE SUN
At the beginning of 2019, Tellurico was invited by Parasite 2.0 to participate in the exhibition ‘’The Librarian Room’’ commissioned by Corraini Edizioni.
The idea was to give to each designer invited to the exhibition a Book around which they have to develop a dedicated object. The book assigned to Tellurico was ''Drawing the Sun'' by Bruno Munari.
‘’Drawing the Sun’’ is a book by Bruno Munari, published by Corraini Editore in 1980. It is one of a series of five children’s books written by Munari investigating the different perception of the surrounding environment, the result of a series of workshops that the author has given in the late seventies. The idea behind this book is to stimulate the perception of a child by asking him/her to draw what he/she sees, meanwhile giving them information about the subject, in this case, the Sun.
Munari thought that through this method the children can develop the innate creativity that any human has in himself. He saw the sun as one the biggest form of inspiration for its multiple possibilities and the various scenarios it can creates.
Getting inspired by this approach Tellurico decided to literally translate the message of ‘’Drawing the sun’’ in ‘’Designing the Sun’’ by realising a foldable solar panel charger, which respects the proportion of a regular book. The Object becomes a statement about the sun, raising awareness on one of the many functions that Sun can have in our daily life.
