The Encrusted Ceiling    Project Team: Nicholas Kehagias, Dino Kiratzidis   The project investigated the idea that ceilings, moldings and medallions could be articulated as the aggregation of booleaned 'soft' geometries. The final project was the development of a corner medallion: the most 'encrusted surface' is its horizontal (ceiling) plane; its vertical planes are articulated as a gradient from encrustation and deep boolean creases, to a completely smooth flat 'graphic' edge. This medallion is both object and graphic, exploiting this inherent tension in the design of ornamental surfaces.
