Sea-level rise also calls for a change of vision in the design of urban development. Innovative and sustainable approaches are required to ensure the resilience of coastal cities (SOURCE: IPCC, Climate Change 2023: Synthesis Report, 2023).

SEAForm designs modular, self-sufficient and environmentally friendly floating platforms integrated with the marine ecosystem that, through innovative proprietary technologies, enable life on the water.

SEAForm technology enables the creation of land on water, which, unlike traditional methods (dredging), allows modular growth and adaptive flexibility at different depths. Thanks to its balancing system, it is versatile in its various functions and features a significant reduction in construction time and costs.


SEAForm is the result of the research activities of the Marine Offshore Renewable Energy Laboratory of the Politecnico di Torino combined with the innovative vision of Prof. Giuliana Mattiazzo. The team consists of professionals with expertience in offshore technology and expertise in intellectual property management, planning, marine biology and environmental sustainability.

What makes SEAForm’s solution unique is its modularity, standardisation and respect for the marine environment. The main objective of this technology is to create artificial land on water in a sustainable way, able to adapt to the growing needs of ports, offshore installations and coastal cities, providing spaces and supporting infrastructures. SEAForm represents a cost-effective and innovative alternative to traditional dredging methods.


SEAForm’s modular and sustainable approach offers a solution to the problem of land shrinkage caused by rising sea levels and land scarcity due to overpopulation, revolutionising urban construction paradigms. The solution is designed to minimise impact by using recycled materials and non-invasive anchoring, as well as by creating artificial reefs to regenerate the marine ecosystem.


SEAForm saw in Faros an opportunity to turn a university research project into a business, with a view to market validation and the development of a sustainable and successful start-up. Constant support provided by mentors allowed the team to focus on the road map and conduct a feasibility study in collaboration with the Port Authority of the Ionian Sea to evaluate the introduction of a floating platform system in the port of Taranto.
