Description

Peter Donders’ “C-stone” is named for the carbon fiber processed through an innovative technique to produce a striking asymmetric form. Despite the complexity of this form, Donders found a way to construct the stone by layering geodetic paths so that the fiber could ultimately be assembled mechanically from one piece. Although these edgeless organic forms appear simple at first sight, its existence is depends on a great deal of complex mathematics and calculations. Donders is the only designer so far who has been able to shape carbon fiber so organically, which has attracted the attention of the car, air and space industries worldwide.

About the designer


Peter Donders (born 1965) worked for fifteen years as a craft-furniture designer and maker before beginning to integrate computer-based tools into his work. Now he combines his background as a craftsman with his expansive technological knowledge — the computer is now fully part of his production process. For every object Donders makes, he pushes the borders of existing technology and techniques. Besides his work with carbon fiber, he loves to explore the possibilities of 3D printing. Due to his fascination with the leading Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, Donders\' creations feature organic lines and serene shapes, which maintain nonetheless an interesting and exiting aesthetic harmony.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
