Based on a profound mathematical research, Estudio Cerisola combines advanced technology with highly skilled craftsmanship to create intricate pieces from high quality materials with an impeccable finish.
The research of Estudio Cerisola is centred on the beauty of geometric constructive principles found in nature and how these systems can be applied to the design and fabrication of modular structures.
The findings made are utilised in the design of furniture, sculptures, playgrounds, public spaces, lamps, toys and other daily life objects.
Estudio Cerisola collaborates with artists, artisans and scientists to produce unique pieces and with institutions, such as the Institute of Mathematics of the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), in the construction of mathematical models for divulgation and educational purposes.
