Square Wave is a creation born of a collaboration between Atellani and the renowned British sculptor, Ivan Black. Our idea was to spread the magic of kinetic art to our Kickstarter audience with an affordable and fascinating sculpture. Our project was funded on Kickstarter in 2019, enabling us to become a producer of kinetic sculptures that double as interactive toys, made entirely in Italy.
