JOY N.1
BY CLAUDIA RAIMONDO
FOR ALESSI
A result of the ongoing research into the workability and the expressive potential of steel, the Joy n.1 centrepiece combines technological and production aspects of cold metal working with those of the contemporary language of folder design and, thus, with a single technical gesture a sheet of steel is transformed into configuration and décor. The faces, through the play of reflected light, hint at ancient objects forged from precious metals, and they define its ample open shape with irregular margins, along with the rich faceted geometric texture, which is reminiscent of the background of the digital world. This is one way to rethink the art of metalworking, in the light of experience seen on the surfaces generated by modeling software, the same ones used to create the architectural outer shells of avant-garde buildings. The object becomes something fluid and natural even if it crystallized into a solid matter.
