Turin-based design collective Studio Nucleo has created a series of chromatic art furniture items constructed to form a pixellated effect for an exhibition at Nilufar Gallery.
The art exhibition, titled It’s All About Colour, has seen Italian Studio Nucleo release pastel-hued versions of its all-white Primitive modern furniture collection, which was initially released in 2009 and 2010.
“The art is free from ‘enslavement’ to the subject, able to translate the motions of the human soul with the pure color or pure form.”
Each of the geometric pieces, which include a large floor lamp, a pendant light, a sofa, an armchair, and a dining table, are reimagined and animated in soft shades of pale pink, mint green, canary yellow and dusty blue.
“The return to the structure is a 20th-century leitmotiv, with artistic avant-garde, from cubism to abstract art, to constructivism, suprematism,”said Studio Nucleo.
When designing the collectible design pieces and furniture, Studio Nucleo aimed to reduce aggregated forms to basic geometric shapes. The result is a series of products that boast a pixellated style, made up of overlapping cubes.
Made by hand, each modern design item is unique and has been finished with a non-toxic resin that highlights the bumps and imperfections on its surfaces.
