PLATE is made by simple design gestures, as the elements that is consisted of are limited to the absolute necessary. It’s surface is created by aluminum sheet, 8mm thickness, with an alloy of specific hardness, which allows the absence of any extra structural element.
The legs made of polygonal section profile achieve the breakup of their volume through the different shading their sides cast, viewed by varying angles.
The differentiation between the well-defined rectangular planes of the vertical elements and the curvilinear horizontal surface intensifies the sense of suspension.
The progressive variation of geometry, shade and reflection shape the identity of the object, while the coating builts up the effect. Containing metal grains creates diffuse reflections and tone gradation making the object interact subtly but dynamically with its environment.
