Metals as matter.
Metals as an evolutionary process.
Metals as aesthetic suggestion.
Nucleo discovers metals with a sequence of three tables, unique pieces inspired by the metal ages,
united by the name “Metals”: Copper Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
Ideal continuation of past projects related to primitivism, Nucleo pays tribute to the human capacity to evolve.
The ages of the metals have profoundly influenced society in a sustainable manner and directed it towards civilization as we know today.
Writing, urbanization, transport and navigation are all progress being made, thanks to the discovery and use of metals.
The tables, published as unique pieces, are made entirely of thin sheets of metal assembled by welding,
united by the same shape, but made with different metals and finishes from time to time, in step with human evolution.
Iron Age coffee table is a unique piece of the “Metals” project.
