From Nucleo:

Presenze as an evidence of past lives. Presenze as ethereal, floating like ghosts. Presenze as absence and immaterial substance. Presenze and absence, appearance and immateriality, historical and afterlife forms. This is the inspiration for the latest research project of Nucleo.

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. Nucleo has filtered disused names and experiences, re-worked old pieces of furniture such as consoles, desks, bedside tables and fireplace chairs.

The furniture is both ancient and contemporary, revived and restored into new life. With the Presenze collection, Nucleo has created decorative etherneal objects floating through space. 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.

And the lack of assemblage is one of the strong characteristics of Presenze. Each cube, a fragment, giving a sense to the deconstruction. The objects from other eras are in this sense apparitions ready to dissolve and split, in the struggle between materia and spirit.

The cubes, 5×5 cm are casted in epoxy resin and together create the objects. They are assembled by hand, giving balance between body and space, where individual fragments develop its own intensity – capable of capturing light and gaze – which goes beyond their function in the context of composition.

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
