Torino, Italy-based Studio Nucleo is a collective of artists and designers who work in contemporary art, design and architecture. They state that they investigate “time-frames; their matrix and their existences” within distinctive, curious and tactile projects that “draw comparisons between the past and the future.”

In 2013 the studio created a series of “Trottola” bowls, which are made out of Corian, a surfacing material produced by DuPont. The bowls are an homage to Eadweard Muybridge, a 19th century English photographer who used multiple cameras to capture motion. The designs are reminiscent of tops and appear to be frozen in the act of spinning.
Photographs of the collection follow.
