RG05 is a solid wenge and rosewood cube that can be separated into four trays with different facilities to store precious objects. The overall dimension is 170x170x170mm.“As a practising architect, these objects represent functional small-scale pieces of architecture.
I believe the practice of architecture is related to the design of furniture pieces; working on small and large scales at the same time is very important, in the sense that these represent complementary sides of the design process” the architect explains. Rui has used the cube consistently for previous pieces, a conceptual basic element, he states, "The cube represents, through its geometrically perfect form, a base for research, and allows me to search form by subtracting and/or separating parts from the whole.”
RG05 is a versatile piece which can be organised in a different way each time, by the user and therefore remains in flux.
