Hypnosis: metodo per la fabbricazione rapida di stampi

Hypnosis is a quick manufacturing method for molds for
custom and unique items, combining cutting of polystyrene with hot tools and thermoforming techniques. The methodology offers the ability to develop the production of
custom and unique elements having complex low-cost forms for building
systems and components. Hypnosis is the perfect method for applications in contemporary architecture, where personalized elements are increasingly required to cope with the geometric complexities of new expressive languages.
