One of the eight chapters of the book for the 25th anniversary of Tonelli Design:
Chance Methodology
by Leonardo Sonnoli and Irene Bacchi (Tassinari/Vetta)
The random, beautiful, and unique shapes created by breaking a glass slab are the starting point for the serial production of glass cut using CNC machines. A process that, whilst imitating fortuity– and probably being defeated by it– reflects on the idea of design as the relationship between manual skills and serial production, as well as on the beauty of the impossibility of perfection.
