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.
