OVO[i] project was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente[ii]. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.

This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.

The egg is a dip in the perfection of emptiness. The introduced silence reminds us of the extreme closeness between life and death.

Pedro Simões

The draft form work in particular, held in a noble material, Wood, reflects the materialization of a regular geometric volume, known in mathematical language as Ellipsoid and whose production process had this parametric equation that gives ‘life’ to that shape. The use of computer-assisted production technologies and the use of a particular methodology of CNC programming (DMP-Design Math Program) allowed flexibility in the production of each structural component. New volumes within the same typology are thus possible without any additional programming effort. The translation into mathematical language of the creative process elevates the status of the static form into a new dimension where the ability to mutate is allowed.
