The Ray Side Tables derived from the same concept as the Gnomon sculptures. They were conceived at the same time and their inspiration also comes from sundials. Instead of an artistic piece, I wanted to create a functional piece of furniture. So I took the sundial and turned it upside down, adding two additional gnomon to form the legs. And just like that the Ray side tables were born.
Tables are made from powder coated 0.5cm thick steel and are produced in Milan, Italy.

Gnomon Wall Sculptures
The inspiration for the Gnomon sculptures came from the sundial. I have always been fascinated with this somewhat primitive way of telling time and for a while now, wanted to translate it into a design project. The opportunity to do so came when Miami International Airport invited the design collective, Inventory, whom I'm a member, to participate in an exhibition. The theme of the show was "Time." This was the perfect venue to introduce these pieces. The name comes from the actual part of the sundial that’s used to cast shadows onto the dial’s face. The Gnomons were originally plated in 24 carat gold representing 24 hours in a day and golden sun rays. The shadows cast reminds us of time swiftly moving forward.
The Gnomons are come in two finishes, mirrored chrome aluminum or mirrored gold aluminum, and are produced in Milan, Italy.

As anyone in the design field can tell you, your environment greatly inspires your creativity. Miami is no exception. We sometimes refer to it as the city of bling, and boy is there a lot of it. So as the saying goes, I got inspired. The Baguette mirrors were inspired by the beautiful facet cuts of precious stones. Each facet of the mirrors has its own unique angle and degree giving you four ways to display them. This design really shines when arranged in groups of three or more, but like a solitary precious stone, it is still beautiful enough to stand on its own and so are these mirrors.
Mirrors are made of polished aluminum and are produced in Milan, Italy
