MARCH 2011

The “Grillo” family-operated business has focused on zinc and sulphur production since 1842. The family’s documented history goes back to the early 16th century. 235 MEDIA has created an interactive table to make the family tree with over 1500 members and the family business history conveniently accessible.

In addition, the documented family history can be explored in nine showcase-monitors. The original documents and business correspondence of the company’s ancestors and their descendants is often still written in “Sütterlin” , (old German script) and is transcribed by integrated touch screens. The company still owns the authentic muffle tubes that were used for zinc production in the 18th century. Diverse projections are installed inside of these clay pipes, showing the chemical and visual reaction of zinc-recovery as well as filmed documentation about historical zinc recovery.

PARTNERS: In cooperation with Bildwerk.
