The entire universe is shaped from multiple connections that are arranged according to their capacity to give structure. Unison is created between each contact point to establish a common balance. From this, the inspiration for NODO was drawn: A furniture collection consisting of a network with numerous connections that generate its structure and geometry. NODO takes the essence from the classic piece of furniture and transforms it into a dynamic object completely made out of fiberglass. The interwoven fibers were not only designed to function as a structural component but to allow the piece to behave as a membrane through which communication between the environment and its context is encouraged. Instead of a solid surface piece, this product has an open aesthetic, displaying its content in an honest manner while using little material and maintaining high structural resistance.

Thus far, the NODO collection consists of a console and a coffee table. Pentágono is currently working on new applications exploring this innovative technique.
