Presented for the first time at Zona Maco 2019.
This sculptural geometric system emerged, inspired by the modular possibilities of the cuboctahedron as outlined in Buckminster Fuller’s Synergetics, a seminal work in contemporary geometric studies.
Designer Pedro Cerisola, renowned for his innovative approach to modular fabrication, was immediately drawn to the cuboctahedron’s modular potential. With a tireless commitment to experimentation and exploration, Cerisola has created a series of ethereal yet intricately detailed structures from a single ceramic piece that elicits the visual sensation of clusters of clouds suspended in mid-air.
Cerisola’s creations are designed to encourage play and interaction, allowing for infinite configurations that can be artfully modulated to any scale. The results are breathtakingly beautiful and conceptually profound works of design.
Cúmulos is an ode to the boundless possibilities of modular assembly and a tribute to the intrinsic beauty of geometric shapes. Cerisola’s artistic vision is rooted in the notion of creating works that seamlessly combine aesthetic beauty with intellectual depth, and his works invite contemplation and inspire creativity. Through his remarkable designs, Cerisola has demonstrated that design can be both an intellectual pursuit and a sensorial experience.
