- One curve, one dimension, one material -
The narrative was born out of a very simple question: How can one relate to an object in the 21st century when the community has an overabundance of tools to create any abstract shape possible? We inspired ourselves by looking at one of the fundamentals of sketching where almost any creative idea starts. Something so simple -understood by anyone- yet so strong, The curve.
Our narrative starts from physicalizing an ergonomical curve. By bending 3 abstract labile planes along this trajectory and intersecting them, a structural entity is emerging. The two dimensional line becomes a spatial object, which on its turn creates complex three dimensional curves. Nevertheless the physical presence of one line highlights the simplicity of the narrative.
As we are naturally drawn to light, 3mm thin tempered steel plates let the observer discover the ever-changing soft materiality of light framed by the sharp edges. The object becomes the center of a three dimensional experience characterized by the ambiguity of it not being strictly design, art or architecture. It results in a piece so striking in geometric simplicity, almost as if... you designed it yourself.
