Tracing the past of the future in Italian Design
The Resin Fossil Table is an experimental design from Piergiorgio Robino and Stefania Forsini of Nucleo Design. Crafted as a single piece of fiberglass, resin and pigment, the table has both a shimmering lightness and a monumental heaviness. This juxtaposition comes from the table’s inspiration: fossils, the trace of an original that has been destroyed.
This handmade table traces the object it was based on and so, despite its appearance, it’s empty inside. Like the other pieces in the Resinite collection, the Resin Fossil Table plays on the idea of desining the future of objects in order to “make them the fossils of themselves.”
