This lampshade consists of a shell structure composed of differentiated lidinoids. In this lampshade the resulting morphology of interconnected labyrinths of passages varies in opening according to isosurface value variation, allowing different lighting possibilities.
Porcelain Tower Vase This vase was designed using one of my parametric systems for building design. It consists of a continuous porous surface adapted to the base morphology. The resulting vase skin gives intricate terraced aesthetics. This design is part of a series of studies of differentiated gyroids. Available for order in five different colors here.
The design consists of a shell structure and obelisk that conjures up Venetian architecture. While the arches present in both structures allude to the Baroque époque, the components of the shell remind one of the colorful Venetian roofs. The Obelisk is a hierarchical element performing as a point of reference at a distance similar to St Mark’s Clocktower. The fact Venice has hosted vanguard architectures throughout its Biennales is reflected in the overall morphology, design method and fabrication technique used here. Planes of water fuse reflections of both the existing and the new. Location: Marco Polo airport entrance, Venice
