The ladder suspended in resin is part of a series called Souvenir of the Last Century, which also includes a stool set in the same solid substance.
Nucleo is showing the pieces with Cologne-based Ammann Gallery at the art and design fair in the Park Avenue Armory on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Also debuting is a totem-like resin light fixture called Fossil.
The group is also showing a new version of its Primitive Table in a frosted white colour with a matte finish.
Nucleo's previous pieces for Ammann have used other found objects including stools and old lumber cast in or joined to resin. They have also used coloured acrylics to simulate semiprecious stones for stools and other furniture.
Turin-based Nucleo is a collective of artists and designers comprising Piergiorgio Robino, Alice Carlotta Occleppo, Stefania Fersini, and Alexandra Denton.
For Milan-based Nilufar Gallery, the group has created a bronze chair called Presence, which features a gridded design.
Small squares are subtracted from the gridded seat creating a pixilated effect with holes, while bronze cubes are added to the legs and seat back.
The Salon Art + Design is a four year old art, antiques, and design fair held in New York City.
