Description

The ‘360º Diagonal’ sofa is part of the ‘Bent Foam, Metal Frame’ collection commissioned by the Machado Muñoz Gallery (Madrid, Spain). It was first presented in 2017 in the ARCO Art Fair (Madrid, Spain).

This Playful, Brutalist, and yet Stylized Sofa is one of the results of a long investigation by Lucas Muñoz Muñoz in the shapes Foam takes when it’s molded into steel frames.

This piece is composed of two foam blocks, cut at a right angle, covered by a neoprene sleeve and tamed into a Sofa function by setting it in a steel frame. It’s a Contemporary redefinition of Upholstery where Tension and Compression shape Function. The concept of minimal intervention in the original manufactured state of the material defines design decisions throughout the piece, so no screws, glue or any other mechanic or chemical connector is used, A straight seam closes each neoprene sleeve in a tube. Foam cuts and metal welds are only done in right angle, with just the pressure to “fit in” defining the shape of the resulting Sofa.

About Lucas Muñoz Muñoz Visit Showroom →

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz (1983) works in the field of art and design. Through craft and travel, his work is mainly based between the Netherlands and Spain. However, has recently settled back in Madrid, where his studio & atelier resides now. His practice explores redefinitions of the functionality and materiality of use-objects, spaces and engineering. Working out with his hands a field that intertwines the need for use of our daily-life artifacts with the capacity they have to carry and embody meaning from a creative and critical approach. Lucas Muñoz Muñoz has been making and producing since his early twenties. He founded eStudio enPieza! in Madrid, with David Tamame and his work,  with them travelled the world and became part of private and public design collections (as London´s Royal Science Museum permanent funds). Since then until now, in his current location, Tetuan (Madrid, Spain), the designer and artist has passed through Carabanchel (2008-12) and Eindhoven (2012-22), developing a body of work that occupies a wide spectrum that ranges from furniture to skateboards or Sound Systems. In all of them, Lucas has always maintained a balance between the conceptual and the material, being a designer who thinks with his hands and seeks a distillation of the concept of each action that his creative process requires. This has made him develop a career closely linked to sustainability and material circularity, having been the winner of the Dezeen, FRAME and ICON Awards. In addition to being a workshop maker, he also develops conceptual and critical work based on local and context-driven research. Total works include the “Temporal” Collection for Machado Muñoz Gallery, “Materia Gris“ Exhibition at Centro Centro Cibeles, Listening Party & Exhibition at Nave La Mosca, to a more holistic level, MO de Movimiento (from which his studio received the Dezeen Award and FRAME Magazine award, both for sustainability), to a more retail and commercial use “ON Running” installation and furniture design (London, Zurich & Miami). These works have shown his capacity to revisit his field of work through a creative commitment that brings a lateral approach into every area he steps in. One that takes what is in situ, puts in value local craft and materials, brings in ex situ knowledge, addresses consumption and pollution and includes the context, with its social and cultural layers, as a departure point. Many times his work finds shape into objects and most of his individual pieces find home at gallery exhibitions, hospitality, retail spaces, domestic spaces as well as private collectors. Some others remain thought exercises that become sensorial digressions about our social and man-made landscapes. A practice that most of times renders physical in his atelier but also finds shape during interventions abroad, being the later ones mainly in collaboration with local creatives or cultural institutions. Some of his projects also result in video, 3D scans, sound pieces and ephemeral interventions that consolidate a body of work that takes design as the center of an area which extends into other disciplines and fields of knowledge. His approach addresses design in an extended view, and considers it a language that can be articulated, not only by objects, in a way that intends to be more dialogical than dialectical.
