The winning idea

Atellani was fully involved in developing the project in all its stages including the design, production, crowdfunding campaign, logistics and shipment. Febo is the result of a research conducted by Italian designers Paola Papetti, Rosalia Galeano and Francesca Padovan. It was designed for MUSTshop - the concept store of the Science and Technology Museum of Milan - as part of the course Innovation Studio’s course at Politecnico di Milano.

The challenge here was to transform a functioning model-prototype aimed to be a toy for kids into a well refined product for a wide range of possible customers. The size of the final product was drastically reduced compared to the original prototype in order to make it more comfortable and practical to hold.

“Febo looks like a fun and attractive design tool. And how often do you get to draw with the sun, anyways?”

FastCoDesign, John Brownlee

“We have all used a magnifying glass to concentrate the power of the sun burning holes in paper, but FEBO takes this one step further and provides an easy way of engraving items with a lot more accuracy.”
