Design collective Nucleo is glad to present the latest work designed for Nilufar Gallery.
A limited edition coffee tables, exhibited during Milano Fuori Salone 2013.
From the designers:
Cages as simple spatial representations.
Cages as grids that allow the passage of light.
Cages as metal reinforcement of a building's pillar.
Cages is a recoding of the concept of wireframe.
Literally model in wire commonly used as a type of graphic representation of three-dimensional objects from computer.
With this method are drawn only the edges of the object, which in fact remains transparent inside.
These frames allow you to quickly identify the dynamics of the project in terms of practical use.
Incomplete bronze surfaces evoke the concept of the plans in the making, oxidized each in a different way as if to recall a library of materials.
Small cuts on the surfaces as remembering the mathematics language splits the meaning, between the message and the function.
