Presenze by Nucleo

During this year’s Design Miami/Basel, Nucleo presented their latest collection called Presenze, with these “caramelized” chairs being part of it. The 5×5 cubes are casted in epoxy resin and are assembled by hand.

From the designers:

“The Presenze collection is a testimony of past lives, the evolution of obsolete objects. The glories of the nineteenth-century baroque structures has been re-designed into minimalistic shapes, given a strong characteristic from its material, resin.

A game of presence and absence, of lightness and weight, challenging the law of gravity. The balance is made even more precarious by the milkiness of the resin, permeable to light. It’s a fascination for the transition, from liquid to solid, from past to presence.”
