About the designer


Luiza Caldari’s approach to tapestry stems from her background in design and is driven by material exploration. She works to mix “the simplicity of wool, something so familiar and known to everybody” with unusual shapes and unexpected color palettes. Caldari’s use of fiber also extends to sculptures and functional objects. “My intention is to bring more color to life, creating a kind of coziness for the eyes,” says Caldari. “I want my work to bring comfort and joy for all who see it.”

Without formal training as a weaver, Caldari sees her work as a free form exercise. “I don’t follow rules and I’ve created my own unique method of weaving. I sometimes search for formal techniques, but in a way that optimizes my creativity,” says Caldari. This freeness is evident in Caldari’s work; weft yarns cascade from her tapestries. Within the same piece she may add tufting and wrapped elements. It’s obvious that she enjoys playing with the medium, as her tapestries range from large scale handwoven wall pieces to three-dimensional hand-tufted tapestries designed in collaboration with furniture and lighting designers.

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.
