With baroque music as a starting point, each piece is the result of repeating and combining the same type of titanium element. These folded units are arranged, as in origami, to create organic forms in which their geometry is hidden when the metal is forged. The organic appearance of the pieces is also reinforced by the marks left by the hammer, by the mobility of the non-welded elements of which they are composed and, finally, by the anodised colour of each piece.
