At Milan Design Week 2015, Cozì design studio debut collection feature cutting-edge technologies that take traditional materials to the extreme. Indeed, through complex mold planning, processed wood and 3D printing, the studio managed to create complex forms and illusory textural surfaces.
Combining advanced technologies with traditional craftsmanship, the Israeli design studio displays the dialogue between the nature of wood, plastic and porcelain and the manipulated forms.
The Wrinkles and Early blossom center piece bowls are made in processed wood that is carved, tamed and shaped back in natural forms.
SLS 3D printed Plyamide Nylon fabrics are interwoven to create organic patterns of Focus and Ghost lightings. The result is a flexible lace-like textile that is obtained thanks to a meticulously planned 3D programming, printed and assembled by hand.
An high-tech porcelain casting implemented by 3D computerized planning and high-end CNC milling define the shape of some details of Bloom lightings and Early Blossom centre piece bowls.
Cozì Studio co-founders Yuval Carmel and Ofir Zandani say: “There is a dissonance between the materials we use and the forms we realize. They force you to look more thoughtfully, and question the very object you see before you”.
“What inspires us are the challenges of design and production. We strive to break technological boundaries, and take our designs to the tipping point where other designers are afraid to go”.
