Hidden in a vibrant Metropolis, Atelier Merlini is a soundproof incubator offering a unique infrastructure essential for the development and testing of new ideas.
VISION MEETS REALITY
Every idea is closely scrutinized and if it makes the grade it is then incorporated in the next Merlini project. Out of about one hundred and thirty initial projects, only a tiny number reach production.
INSPIRATION AND INNOVATION
Months, even years before a performance reaches the stage, it starts with a dream, an emotion produced by the thrill of a high depth dive in the Atlantic Ocean, tempered with the smell of fresh lava from a nearby volcano and shaped by the the roar of spring thunder. This is the inspiration which becomes the design which is then submitted to a specialized team of engineers and experts who are charged with turning the dream into reality. 3D simulations, risk management strategies, and finally the first prototype of the device envisioned to trap Merlini begins in the hands of skilled craftsmen.
PERFORMANCE AT THE EDGE
Finally it is time to test the physical and psychological resistance and capability of the person determined to live his dream. The farther away we move from the laws of physics and chemistry as they affect the human body, the more extravagant the results.
For us it is about facing a new challenge each and every time. For our audience, it means breathtaking once in a lifetime performances.
