Franco Clivio: Manifolds
Swiss product designer Franco Clivio has always been fascinated by objects that can be opened and closed, folded or pushed into each other in often amazing ways with the help of a wide variety of mechanisms. With the "Manifolds" - a series of works in the transition between the second and third dimension, which in their combination of technical sophistication, precise geometry and minimalist aesthetics delight the eye and the mind in equal measure - Clivio has been taking the step towards purpose-free design for over ten years now. Oscillating between surface and space, static and dynamic, density and dissolution as well as material heaviness and optical lightness, these kinematic objects made of geometric line and surface structures encourage playful exploration of form.
