NoDo is a coffee table made out of old wine container and a concrete surface. The defining feature of NoDo is the pattern embedded within the top plane that has been abstracted from decorative Islamic patterns. the combined shapes used to articulate the overall ornamentations are called ‘gereh’, which means ‘nodes’ in Farsi. Their formation is determined by a mathematical organization from which an array of points generate lines that radiate and intersect. This allows for an infinite amount of compositions, all based on precise calculations that have historically been used on a large scale to dress architectonic elements such as entrances, arcs, window, and door frames. for more intricate details, the process has been used to ornament brickwork, ceramics, plaster, and mirrors.
