The Aggregate collection combines computational design, digital fabrication means and subjective aesthetics. The pieces in this collection are defined in essence by rigorous geometry but are altered to become sensitive. The intent was to explore methods of aggregation of volumetric cells with a regular sober geometry that are set free by deformation. Thus, cells lose their uniformity, but maintain geometric relations. By transforming stable and uniform structures, a familiar but altered image is gained, focused on topological deformation and on the new redefined relations between cells.
The Aggregate collection is born from a process based on feedback between concept, geometry and material, all of which are translated into code. The shape, material and method of materialization bear the fingerprint of the digital environment; thus, the filiform and porous jewellery pieces are generated using computation and made by 3D printing in ABS plastic.
