USM Modular Furniture
Milano Fuorisalone 2018
Presented at the Fuorisalone during the Milan Design Week 2018, the USM Light Tree acts as a meeting point within a given space, taking over the role of the central tree on a town square. On the contrary to a tree that would act as a sun protection, the structure diffuses light and energises the space.
As a study on the relation between rigidity and flexibility, the metal sheets that traditionally close the USM furniture gradually open up and free themselves from the structure, creating a flexible skin of suspended reflectors that model and materialise it’s light.
