Description

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.

Piedrafuego
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.
