"The collection “Centina”, which REFERS to the ‘scaffolding’ norms deployed in the construction of arches, his inventive construction in practice takes up the actual solution of the keystone placed to complete the arch. This method in some
ways refers back to the ‘subtraction of material’ patented by Alvar Aalto to bend solid wood, and in others reveals itself as bravely original, and programmatically counter-current. Here those elements that are usually exposed to curvature are instead set to ‘work’ under compression, thereby deconstructing received logic by simply ‘upturning it’, to find another, that is less obvious."
