From the oldest material to the illusion of shaping the immaterial, from the sculptural tradition of the "well-rounded" shapes to the division in small parts of the surface to create a volume that is an expression of the "subtraction" of many small pieces. The name says it all: a pixel is a point-like element that makes up a digital image, in fact, it is the smallest element that constitutes it. The breakdown in individual pixels of the surface, a kind of three-dimensional mosaic, gives an unprecedented look at the marble sink Pixel. Shape is created by subtraction, man's idea that comes to life through the use of the machine that is then defined in the end again through man's choices.
Tradition meets technology in a decomposed standardized form, sectioned, intersected by an orthogonal lattice, a cylindrical volume on which the machine has mapped out a clear and definite sign according to a project that leaves open endless possibilities of composition. A freestanding ever-changing sink due to the elimination of pieces imagination can take shape, the image is revealed, the essence comes to light. Lights and shadows, depth and reliefs, combinations and distances, connections and insulation. The pixel game that forms the basin is completely oriented on consequentiality, on proximity, on decorum that comes from the material itself. A gesture, that of subtraction, revealing the shape, which allows you to customize the volume, and which amplifies the three-dimensional design of the project. Pixel is subtraction to compose.
