The TAIS Cube series is a range of monobloc distribution board for wall-mounted installation with a family of 7 dimensions.

Our design gives the right importance to this ordinary industrial object with the study of the quality of the rounded edges applied the theory of Jacksonian curve, creating a new dimension with light and shadow which describes the particular changes of profile.

The TAIS Cube is based on the proxemics analysis and the maximisation of the behavioural energy between human and Matter: how design can learn from the natural behaviour of materials, and how materials can change its nature through human curiosity.
