A special feature of PI-NERO (“nero” in Italian means black) that immediately catches the eye are its bi-colour ABS plastic shelves!
The top is white with a glossy finish, while the underside and the outer part of the raised edge is black, with different finishes: glossy and matt!
We achieved this not by gluing two pieces together, but by using a special two-colour injection moulding, an innovative and highly technical solution.
We therefore have a mould that weighs a good 9 tonnes and rotates on its own axis; with just one mould we can make all three types of shelves: top shelf, intermediate shelves and base shelf which incorporates the bumpers.
It was a brave and ambitious choice to ‘refine’ (our ‘refining’ treatment) a service trolley. We did it as a pure choice of style and innovation by applying an exquisitely Italian design to a common object used in healthcare.
