Designed in collaboration with Gloria Gianatti of Sapiens Design, the Continuum collection includes a “tall” coffee table, a “short” coffee table and a stool. The diameter of the three objects is designed to recover as much of the scrap sheet as possible. The two-dimensionalsheet, which is the scrap from the steel laser processing, acquires three-dimensionality and takes on a new aesthetic.

The set of coffee tables was made using acalendering process, which is the process that allows the sheet metal to be bent to give it three-dimensionality.
Calendering allowed the material to bend on itself, perpetuating an idea of circularity, continuity and eternity. The bending of the steel sheets defined new points in space.
The design phase of the scrap aims at optimizing the product as a whole, in order to create a sort of double life. “CONTINUUM” is inspired by the continuity of matter and the eternal return of the circular economy philosophy.
