Description

“1927” is a piece that speaks about adaptation to adversity, preservation of crafts, and local cooperation, and was originally created as part of Kilómetro Zero, a project born out of the movement restriction imposed in Spain during the easing of lockdown. Because of this, the “1927” stool was produced using resources solely found within a 1km distance from the designer’s home, the only area she could move around during this time.

During the designer’s walks throughout the easing of lockdown, she discovered the work of Juan Sánchez, who, for the past 20 years, has run the esparto grass shop that his grandfather opened in Madrid almost a century ago. She created this stool using his know-how and the wood found at a local boards and mouldings shop. As she had to build the stool in her living room, she took inspiration from Rietveld’s DIY and the De Stijl movement, which coincidentally became popular in the Netherlands at the same time as in La Latina when Juan’s grandfather opened his esparto grass shop in 1927.

Reinterpreting the characteristic “Rietveld union”, wood battens overlap creating a structure in the form of a spatial composition. The neoplastic character of the base is complemented by the rustic nature of the seat, handcrafted by Juan in seagrass rope, a very traditional material used to make chairs, backrests, decorations, and other crafts.

About Omayra Maymó Visit Showroom →

Omayra Maymó is an architect and designer based in between Madrid and Copenhagen, occupied in the creation of pieces of furniture, lighting and objects, through which she explores the narrative and emotional power of our material world.
"When I design something I don’t start by thinking about the object itself, but instead I think about the intangible relationship that will be created between that object and its user in more emotional aspects. I see myself as a storyteller. I conceive the object as a form of expression and aim to explore its full narrative and expressive potential. My designs are the language of an intention, an idea that wants to be transmitted beyond the object's functionality, in order to provoke emotions and move people. In addition to my work with industrial products grounded in a large-scale production context, my more speculative projects, which often result in unique, experimental pieces, make up an important part of my work and approach. My work often searches for ways to merge these apparently opposite frameworks into one, exploring the natural potential of materials and their limits and reconsidering how they are processed, with the aim to bring new perspectives into the design industry and approach more meaningful and human ways of manufacturing."
