From Studiocharlie:

CONCHIGLIA SIDEBOARD The sideboard Conchiglia (shell) is inspired by the geometric form of a spiral, which is infinite both in its origin and its development. What we see when we observe a spiral is a portion of it. As it develops it becomes too large to be perceived by the human eye, and in its origin it is too small for us to see the minute details. The sideboard Conchiglia is built on a portion of a spiral. As the geometric form develops, the size of the doors increases, and where the details become invisible at the origin of the spiral there is a void, a concentrated space. The sideboard’s resolute design – its square shape and compact mass – give strength to its presence.

PRIMITIVI COFFEE TABLE AND STOOLS The Primitivi coffee table and stools are designed for collective use, much in the same way tribes in ancient times would gather in circles to perform primitive rituals. Their design brings old symbols to mind: querns, cogs, early stone wheels. They have a monolithic appearance and remind us of massive constructions, volumes balancing on pillars and, at the same time, safely anchored to the ground. The furniture is visually heavy, in contrast with its actual lightness thanks to its being made in aluminium.

ARAGOSTA CHAIR Aragosta (lobster) is a solid wood chair produced by Italian manufacturer Billiani 1911. It was named Aragosta because its shape recalls that of the red crustacean: a powerful body, fine legs and antennae. It is a strong chair, gently resting on the ground, on the tips of its tapered legs. The chair is formed by a dense volume, with its thickness focused on the central seating space, balanced by light faceted extremities that refine its shape.

Taíde House by @ruivieiraoliveira – “The proposal should dialog with its surroundings in a friendly way and even if we would assume something new, the concept was not to disrupt completely with past… We felt that we could create something dynamic without hurting the surrounding environment. From this moment forward, the look for stimuli was inevitable. Looking around, to a sometimes marked terrain, we understand that the surroundings work as an amphitheater, in which the gaze of the neighbors, inhabitants of those unique shaped, inclined roof houses, is very proximate. Over there, streets are narrow, backyards are almost public and every word is listened. The scale of the house was a concern.” #architecture #house #minimal #villa #geometric
