Description

Ból, outdoor bench, is inspired by the beds that lined the walls of the traditional Icelandic turf house. Beds that also functioned as seats. On cleaning days, bedclothes would be aired in the crisp arctic winds. Ból transposes the beautiful benches themselves from the dim turf house out into the open air. Ból is handmade in a small family business in Iceland, where 3rd generation of experts keep on mastering the age-old method of sand casting. It is a time consuming but fascinating process, where red hot metal is poured into sand molds. The heavy outdoor bench is designed to withstand extreme weather condition. It is low in maintenance and comes flat packed. Although it is designed for outdoor use it can just as well be used indoor, in private spaces as well as public ones.

About the designer

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
