Matrice by Cedit

Sensory Structures

For Cedit’s Matrice collection, Brondi and Rainò have taken various concrete-inspired surfaces and imagined additional design reverberations, using 3mm deep incised graphic marks cut into the slabs.

This recalls embroidery where every stitch is at right-angles to another one to construct forms and decorations. Continue reading Sensory Structures
