Estudio Cerisola

Based on profound mathematical research and its application to modular constructions, Estudio Cerisola combines advanced technology with highly skilled craftsmanship to create intricate pieces of impeccable quality.

Estudio Cerisola´s exploration centers on the beauty of natural geometric principles and how these systems can be applied to the design and fabrication of modular structures. These developments are implemented in the design of furniture, sculptures, playgrounds, public spaces, lamps, toys, and other daily life objects.

Estudio Cerisola collaborates with artists, makers, 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.
