My Highlights from Design Miami/ 2013
Ren denies the distinction between tabletop and base and homogenizes each component into a species that hovers precariously, oblivious to its functions. Ren will be produced in two series - bent ply and marble. Each series will articulate the relationship between form and material performance while emphasizing adaptability.
Ren is sculpted from a single block and utilizes a combination of cutting-edge CNC milling technologies and exquisite hand crafting techniques. It varies in thickness and is marked by unexpected twists, bulges, and detailing on the underside. The design animates the stone and strikes harmonic balances throughout the luminous surface.
