This is the reason why I appreciate so much the design projects born after deep research, the ones that realise ideas and not only shapes, that are conceived defying the potentials of technologies and materials, that stand out for their absolute novelty or for those small clever solutions that make the difference. Materials and technology are a huge innovation factor and when they have the power to modify the design process, to reinvent the way a product is conceived; then you need a good dose of creative talent to come out with products that could have never been thought before because it was simply impossible to manufacture them using traditional processes.
The Sequence bowl designed by One&Co is a great example of this creative path. Conceived as a rectangular mono-materic piece which surface transforms from solid to a loose textile chain towards the centre.
The duality between the dense, structural edges and the flexible centre made of loose chain rings donates a wonderful magic effect to the object; having one single material capable of changing its physical properties from hard to flexible is certainly unprecedented and unexpected.
