Jonathan Nesci’s latest work in bronze exemplifies his aesthetic in both scale and form clarity.
Nesci has been developing a parametric grid based on the Golden Ratio and has rigorously
pushed forms around this near endless system which he has been developing. This system,
which he has named Golden Variations, is the geometric framework Nesci needed to
experiment with new materials and manufacturing processes. The GV Bronze chair is perfectly
proportioned around this grid where every point is reasoned within this three-dimensional
system. The framework for the GV Bronze was created in a quite low-tech manor using local
Swiss-Amish craftsmen to fabricate. This initial first-step prototype is where Jonathan can adjust
the form in full scale without waste. Once the form is finalized, it is skinned in patinated-bronze
that is laser-cut and meticulously hand finished. This type of refined architectural cladding has
endless possibilities and the GV Bronze Chair is the first example in which Nesci used bronze with this technique.

About Jonathan Nesci

Jonathan Nesci designs furniture with a clean, minimalist aesthetic. “I am informed by the work that has preceded me and aim to add a building block in the continually changing landscape of product and process,” he says. The founder of HALE, an industrial design company based in the American Midwest, Nesci produces (usually matte-finished) monochrome pieces in industrial materials like concrete and metal. He derives his simple forms—as in the pieces from his “The New” series—from the observation of banal everyday designs; for “Nine “Variations” he created a line of polished aluminum shelves, chairs, and tables from elemental geometric shapes. Nesci’s Library Bookcase, a minimalist, partitioned wall shelf, won Wallpaper’s annual design award.
