There is unite and traditions of the designers’ culture as Venezuelan indigenous weaving, with Europe contemporary design, in which they have been shaped in the recent years. Managing both, to continue renew design tradition while being at the forefront of the lasted international design expansion.


Inspired by the ambition of ‘cutting-distance’ between design and material and ‘fluctuating shapes’ as their expression towards contemporary design, the project is cultivated around the concept of modularity  and the customized.


“For us, collection of small, modular containers, designed with ten basic parts that through various materials and combinations can construct more than 100 unique objects with different shapes and capacities, from lamps to tableware and side tables” commented by 3 Dots Collective Team.


In their design, materials are an important motivation. “We prefer to work in materials that have clear rules and restrictions, which may be readable in their final form” by 3Dots Collective Team.


For Pot.Purri they chose the concrete as vanguard material that continues to change and improve, which represents a strong structure for contemporary design. The metal, which is a strong material, they turn it vulnerable as the cultures of today, translating into a canvas for new patterns that will combine later. The project allows the user to mix and match shapes materials and colors.


They shaped the concept based on ten fundamental modular elements, with different dimensions and diameters that can be mutually paired and combined consequently, providing unlimited possibilities. The forms are adjusted according to dimensions, so they fit each other while the elements are mutually connected with an innovative system that allows a manipulation.


In addition to matching various elements it’s also possible to combine several colored modules, they selected a range of colors and patterns, evocative and indigenous traditional weaving, applied to metal parts. The final choice of the product’s elements can lean towards either one material or be complemented in a multi-colored combination, always varying in form and shape. This new approach towards the flexibility of the pieces fusion with the constant possibility of upgrading or changing, focuses at a wide spectrum of new uses.
