unconsumption : The Fragment table was des
The Fragment table was designed by Roberto Sironi, industrial designer from Milan, Italy. The project tries to investigate the aesthetic-expressive quality of briccole cut-outs.
Briccole is a wooden man-made marine structure that extends above the water level and is not connected to shore. They are used at ports and piers for various reasons, for example to provide a fixed point for ships, when all the pier length is already used. Sometimes they are used to carry useful information like speed limits, advertising or navigation aids.
Briccole used in this project are old pieces of oak wood, that stayed over 10 years underwater, being eroded by water. This provided elements with particular, unique embroidery.
