Our bookend set is handcarved in basaltic stone in San Lucas Evangelista, México. The volume evokes a basic architectural typology: the staircase. The monumental pyramids of Mesoamerica were built using the talud-tablero system, a succession of slopes and steps made out of basaltic slabs. Centuries later, Luis Barragán treated stairs as subtle sculptural elements that emerged from the landscape, as we can appreciate in his work in “El Pedregal”.
The set includes two bookends, each of 10 x 10 x 10 cm.

The studio was born in 2013 as Álvareztostado, experimenting with materials and artisanal mexican craft techniques.
In 2016 the studio transformed itself into Piedrafuego, honoring the transformation of materials -the meeting of human hands and earthly resources- the subsequent dialogue between materials and those who make our objects.
The studio also develops architectural projects, artisanal manufacturing and interior design.
Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times.
Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M.
Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”.
The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
