minimalist style & wire design
Blank is a console with a minimalist design and a strong personality, made in metal and plexiglass.
It can be used as a table to decorate a modern living room, perhaps to create a contrast to the classic pieces of furniture, or as a desk in an elegant office.
The minimalist style ,the "wire design" style of this console is inspired by the "wire frame model" : the type of graphical representation of three-dimensional objects used by modeling software . The wireframe display offers significant advantages to those who work with three-dimensional graphics programs because it allows to work much faster by requiring simple calculations when compared to views that give a complete representation of surfaces. I use very often this type of representation and I like it because it reproduces, drawing them, only the edges of the object that is completely transparent on the inside .The represented objects are abstract, not drawn in detail: you sense and enrich them with your imagination.
From this suggestion I took the idea to develop a design project in a minimalist style that was inspired by this kind of graphics: I tried to reproduce its lightness by the elimination of "unnecessary gestures", simplifying the object to a set of lines .
Blank is a plexiglass and metal console that recalls the graphic strength and elegance of a line drawing. The base is made in rod : a black mark, light and clear, a line projecting a maze of shadows lost in the reflections of plexiglass.
Surfaces are in transparent Plexiglas; they bend down to the ground, giving a marked asymmetry to the object.
Paradoxically, for this project, I preferred working with physical models instead of graphics programs and rendering. I first realized the line of plexiglass surfaces, and I drew the geometric development that was used to cut the pieces with the laser, in order to create a sharp edge. Then I worked with a blacksmith ( I made with him different projects as the planters Gardeny, the bookcase Dharma): we have "built" piece by piece the base metal rod, assembling, literally under the table top, each segment metal.
I proposed this project to the Salone Satellite 2015, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
