enLighten

enLighten is an hourglass-shaped bedside lamp that tracks your phone use in bed and correspondingly transitions its light color from a pleasant mint green to a throbbing red to make you aware of prolonged phone interaction.

La Smilza

It might seem it has a fragile structure but it is mathematically safe. La Smilza can be considered a spacial reticular structure and it responds to the physical principle of levers. It is composed by broomsticks, 3D printed joints and a suspended seat secured with ropes to the frame. The structure reacts to different strengths depending on how the joints are placed. The chair is designed to be unique, personal, built on the owner's needs and anatomic features. It is transportable, its owner can bring it with him wherever he goes and it will adapt to every situation like a Darwinian creature.

Kintsugi

An object can break itself but doesn't lose its value and its beauty. This is the philosophy of the ancient Japanese technique of Kintsugi, which means “to repair with gold”. What is broken is not a loss but becomes more precious and unique. In the Japanese culture no object must necessarily be perfect: everyone tells its story. Time passes by and from the signs of his passing, it comes a form of beauty even more powerful. Kintsugi tableware is born from this philosophy and makes the gold ornamentation current and geometric, stylish and elegant, for a timeless and luxurious mise en place.

Flower Shaper

These serie of vases is the result of experimenting with the capabilities and limitations of clay and a self-built 3D clay-printer. Clay is soft and pliable when wet, but becomes hard and brittle when dry. After heating in a kiln, clay transforms into a durable, waterproof material. The focus is on creating interesting shapes and textures that are either difficult and time consuming to make or even not doable using traditional methods. The material and the method defined the structure, the texture and the form. All working together to help shape the flowers. No other materials were added.
