The Acciaio Series 2 Explores the Geometries of Surface

It may take a little bit of extra work by your eyes to make sense of the abstract structures in the Acciaio Series 2. The collection is a new assortment of furniture by Max Lipsey that builds upon a set of earlier and more familiar pieces. In other words, the uses of these functional sculptures are less recognizable.

Nevertheless, you will begin to distinguish the shape of a chair, a coffee table, a lamp, a partition and a bench-table hybrid. Each is assembled from perforated panels of metal mesh, cut to triangular forms that construct curiously cubist objects.

Not a single item can be called boring, for each one looks completely unique from every perspective. Acciaio Series 2 even stimulates one's taste for eccentric design by simultaneously exuding industrial and whimsical qualities. Stats for Multifaceted Industrial Furnishings Trending: Older & Buzzing
