POH (Patchwork Oval Hemisphere) is a piece
composed by marrying hand-made,
computer made and machine made.
The process begins with a hand-made chaotic volume
assembly of wood trunks that is then carved
by a 3 axis cnc machine according to a
computer generate model.
The complex process of creating poh results
each time in a unique object that
can not be repeated.
poh was conceived for the 'post-fossil'
exhibition in the design museum holon created
by Lidewij Edelkoort in the spring of 2011.
in that occasion Giulio Cappellini decided to
adopt the piece to the permanent collection
of his brand and develop it further.
Pho's ambiguous form allows it
to be used in variable way,
it derives from reversing
the design principle
into 'function follows form'
