Zephyrus is a cabinet, a first piece of the modular furniture series designed by GG-loop. The polymorphic nature of the sculptural furniture piece reflects the quality of the butterfly as a symbol of life as transformation. Its dynamism evokes the beauty and elegance of that transformation in a space.

As a butterfly, it is composed by a body and two wings: the main core of 3 drawers and two wings of 2 drop-front drawers each. Mirroring and rotation around the symmetric core create an ever transformable furniture piece. Recomposition of the modules allows to change the outline and experience of Butterfly as the direction of the apertures modifies with the rotation of the modules. ‘The Butterfly’ does not have a front and back, but rather two front sides that can be rearranged at wish and extended or reduced over time.

GG-loop furniture design is informed by natural processes, mathematical systems and harmonic proportions. At Ventura Lambrate we will showcase our first three pieces of the modular ever-changing furniture series: Vibrio (sofa), Diatom (table) and Zephyrus (cabinet). All of them are conceived to be transformed over time, according to the evolving needs of the user. As in Nature, these pieces organically modify, interact and respond thanks to basic natural principles of duplication and aggregation. These pieces belong to a family, born while developing our main project of 2015, the interior design The Infection.
