Made from CNC-milled walnut top and delicate 3D-prototyped legs ‘Transitional Fields’ table is dynamic, structurally challenging and inspiring. The project is envisaged as a spatial construct informed by the extensive use of emerging digital fabrication tools. The piece is light, fragile and ephemeral. It consists of a complex structural network of interlaced elements that together create an elegant coherent ensemble. The table performs in a natural-synthetic mode emphasised through the materiality between soft and hard, light and heavy. The design was carefully crafted on the computer allowing for greater precision and perfect fit between the 3D prototyped legs and the CNC milled top. The use of 3D modelling and 3D printing allows for easy future design modifications and the potential to produce at various sizes upon request.
Aleksandrina is ARB registered and RIBA chartered architect. She completed a Graduate Diploma/ Masters course in Architecture with Distinction at the Bartlett School of Architecture where she received the Ambrose Poynter Prize for Distinguished work in the Diploma Thesis in 2011. Her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art Summer Show, Clerkenwell Design Week and belongs to the largest European art and design collection at Centre National Des Arts Plastiques, Paris. Aleks is also teaching MArch Architecture Unit 15 at the Bartlett School of Architecture, London.
Aleks established ALEKSA studio – RIBA Chartered architecture and design practice in 2014. Based in the heart of Clerkenwell the practice portfolio ranges from residential and retail projects to installations and furniture design pieces. Our installations and product design pieces are informed by the extensive use of emerging digital fabrication tools. We combine hybrid techniques of making to produce highly complex, structurally challenging and environmentally adaptive spatial constructs. Our work is textural, tactile and ornamental – augmenting the boundaries between interiority and exteriority.
