The phonetic transcription of “BRAVAIS” into Spanish language, «BRAVÉ», suggests courage and bravery. The combination of warm and soft materials (solid wood and burnished brass) with led light tubes showcases this challenge. A blend of past and present, retro-future design.
A HOLLOW PRISM, FILLED WITH LIGHT.
Designed through experimentation with wood and brass as structural components. The result: expanded constructions of lightweight appearance. Geometric layouts of a resounding yet ethereal look, full of functional and artistic possibilities. By creating small changes in angled cuts of their wooden nodes, different structures and volumes are achieved. Accurate designs with undeniable architectural dimension. Attention has been paid up to the smallest detail, as in the bespoke hand-making of the solid wood light bulb socket covers. An exercise in craftsmanship engineering. Axial nodes, seamless joints, compound angled cuts, traction and tensile calculation, distribution of forces in solid wood and brass polyhedral superestructures of accurate dimensions.
