Metrica defines space with simple shapes and broken fragments capturing the essence of ever-changing geometry. It is apparently the periodic recurrence and regular, harmonious flow of geometric elements that dictates the rhythm of Metrica. But in actual fact, modulation is subtle, intermittent, and unforeseeable: the linearity of the geometry is interrupted and motion is added with beats and cadences of light and colour. The alternation of accents is guided by a scheme which generates and defines new compositions. The 4 decorations of Metrica, available in 4 colour variants, take their simple, explicit names – Cerchi, Incroci, Trattini, Parallele – from the geometries naturally created by juxtaposing multiple modules. If the Cerchi modules are set side by side, we obtain a circumference; grids and intersections are generated by the Incroci module; while the Trattini and Parallele modules form the motion of straight and parallel lines and angles.
