In the Particle and Inverso series, articles have a form that seems to want stay close to the stereotype that they represent. Is it possible that the project is focussed on the constructive process and on the utilisation of the materials?

The material was fundamental for Particle, particularly to show that it can be transformed from a so-called ‘poor’ material into something new, with a luxurious and elegant finish.

For Inverso (which means opposite) the name says it all. Luxury materials, like marble, are designed in a way that represents a honeycomb. It is often used to provide internal strength to a structure with laminated surfaces – chipboard is rendered visible and elegant.
