Sculpture https://design.org/tags/sculpture en Ruggero Asnago's Neritagli: Imaginary Creatures and Portable Design https://design.org/blog/ruggero-asnagos-neritagli-imaginary-creatures-and-portable-design <p>Italian designer Ruggero Asnago's <a href="http://neritagli.blogspot.com/" target="Neritagli">Neritagli</a> collection shows how flat 2D objects can be used to create unique 3D stories. As design often does, the project naturally evolved from its original intent. He started crafting the creatures simply with scissors and paper, creating small imaginary animals for fun. He saw the potential in the objects, and referenced <A href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Munari" target="Munari">Munari</a>'s idea of "sculture da viaggio" (portable design) as inspiration.
