Fernando Mastrangelo hones in on natural materials and computer renderings for his latest collection
Brooklyn-based designer Fernando Mastrangelo is known for his experimental sculptural pieces. In the past, Mastrangelo has worked with sand, rock and salt, all handcrafted into conceptual furniture. For his latest collection – entitled ‘Ghost’ and set to launch at Collective Design Fair next week in New York – the designer uses a new studio process of digitally rendering pure white cement to create the colossal pieces that join together.
Here, Mastrangelo delves into the ephemeral inspirations behind his refined range of tables and console. He takes us through the engineering and craft behind the challenging creations, which ‘emulate the gravity of nature with the softness of carved cement’.
Fernando Mastrangelo will launch ‘Ghost’ alongside the new ‘Thaw’ collection at Collective Design Fair, which runs from 3-7 May in New York
