Nucleo is an incredibly intriguing design team based in Italy that creates artistic furniture. Their work is eclectic in that they don't possess a framework or mould that is consistent in the aesthetics. Each piece is completely different and this is what makes it so interesting.
One thing that is consistent with their work is that it possesses artistic quality. Each piece of artistic furniture borders on the edge of an art installation and a piece of furniture -- whether it is a high quality industrial table or a chair made from scrap pieces of plywood.
One of my favorite projects by Nucleo was during their 15th anniversary. They offered the public free instructions on how to create one of their tables made entirely out of LEGO.
