Fractal Furniture Collection
Continuing the theme of knitted furniture designs, here is another inspirational collection! Meet the exquisite Fractal collection that combines both the mild crocheted upholstery and brutal metal base by Nicole Tomazi!
Knitted Fractal Furniture Collection
Brazilian designer Nicole Tomazi has released an amusing and interesting collection of furniture designs, entitled mysteriously “Fractal furniture collection”. Fractal collection is a fusion of mathematics and nature, where the designer was searching for a perfect balance between the structure and texture, and achieved visible success.
The collection consists of an armchair, a table and a shelving system, and presents a combination of steel tubing that split and divides into repeating patterns of hand crocheted polyester knot upholstery. Imagine the possibilities of storage on this hand crocheted table, and a splash of vibrant emerald color of the armchair, or minimalism of a hanger – new exciting stylistic and kinesthetic experience!
Originally displayed at the Salone Satellite Exhibition, during Internazionale del Mobile 2012 in Milan, Italy, the Fractal collection is certainly a fresh perspective to the conservative furniture design approaches, introducing new dimension of combining the ice cold steel and soft warm crocheted patterns, even though they are from polyester. If you are wondering, where the Brazilian designer, Nicole Tomazi have received her inspiration, it came after she started studying fractal geometry and reconsidered the use of lines.
A term fractal refers to a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers. Fractals are typically self-similar patterns, where self-similar means they are “the same from near as from far”. A simpler explanation would mean that fractal is where graphics reproduce natural forms. So, it is hard to relate this term to the original collection, but the combination of steel and soft polyester crocheted upholstery should speak for itself.
