Description

The sphere is the fundamental piece of the collection. This unique light bulb is fully made in crystal resin with a concavity that captures movement and lightness in the material. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, shaped by a mould, forming the sculpture from resin.

The three-dimensional effect of the resin, its lightness and even the smell, brings me back to my childhood when I used to play with the objects that my grandfather created. The use of raw materials has been part of my life too; my father is a geologist, so he taught me the properties and characteristics of minerals. Onyx has been used in pre-Hispanic Mexico to create religious objects and jewellery, I like to use “Mexican Onyx” because of its ancient use and the particular green nuances that makes it so unique. For me, the juxtaposition of onyx and resin is the contrast between precious nature and modern man creation.

Composed of a studded collar and a light bulb. The pedestal is sculpted in Mexican onyx.

About Adrian Cruz Visit Showroom →

In 1946, my grandfather Chema, started to work with resin in his small atelier in Mexico City. He created figures such as toys, buttons and household products, but his creativity went beyond the commercial use of the resin. He started to experiment with new forms, encapsulating flowers and insects to create magnificent artworks.   When I was a child I used to play with these objects, fascinated by the translucency and the three-dimensional illusion that light creates through the resin. After finishing my studies in Architecture in Italy, I realized that those objects were still in my mind waiting to be revived and played again. Today, using the unique and sophisticated technique that Chema developed, I mix colours inspired by the Mexican culture with pure forms in onyx and marble as learnt through my architect's journey.   Through the objects that my grandfather created, he transmitted me his passion. Although I never met him, each piece I design is like discovering something new about Chema.
