Description

LAS ÁNIMAS developed this magazine holder to celebrate the first anniversary of Maasai (2016), a cultural printed and web magazine focused on showcasing the cultural and underground artistic scene of the Andalusian capital city.

Taking the Maasai Universe as their starting point, but avoiding topics arising from folklore and ethnical aesthetics, the design duo dove to greater depths, down to an ancient layer: back to an era where the very first land vertebrates ruled the surface of the earth. The realm of prey and predator, of blood and flesh devoured to the bones, silent carcasses bleached under a sun that never sets. Life and death roughly woven in an endless yarn.

Hand made in red pine solid wood from sustainably managed national forests. The materials were carefully selected, hand cut, planed, carved, and assembled in the LAS ÁNIMAS workshop. Gold leaf is applied using traditional methods. Acid and varnishes used to fix gold to the wooden structure act on this living material, giving it a unique patina. The result is a sculptural organic work of art of monumental semblance and decadent elegance.

The processes involved in the creation of this piece are completely hand crafted. Each piece is numbered out of a 20 units limited edition. Brutalism and apparent simplicity are highlighted in this monumental, yet minimalistic piece of decadent elegance. Hand carved solid wood carcass, covered in gold leaf.

About Las Ánimas Visit Showroom →

LAS ÁNIMAS is a creative studio based in Seville (Spain). Their work includes symbolic, tribal and esoteric elements, and arises from the expressive need of sharing an aesthetic universe; a dreamlike parallel world full of visions; of architectural references, both historical, fictional and coming from images underlying popular culture; hardwired to the unconscious and collective memory. Using a language of geometric and iterative patterns, they experiment with materials, shapes and textures, to develop an iconography of retro-futuristic, transgressive, ceremonial and deeply evocative aesthetics. As a result of this altered field of view where sumptuousness and magic gather, high sensory impact pieces of ceremonial character emerge. Their creative universe encompasses references as distant as Science Fiction, tribal cultures, distortion of reality, cybernetics, duality, experimental electronic music or architectural brutalism; an imaginary that links with the elements of their personal environment, readapted and projected from their very own insight. Their creative body includes pieces of furniture in limited editions, sculptures, interventions and unique objects; everything designed and created by themselves; a symbolic universe full of emotions that lead to a spiritual mood lost in time. Works conceived as totems that challenge functionality and form: latches that open secret trapdoors to higher states of consciousness, connected with mythology, ancient ceremonies, imaginary rites, sacred symbols and spirituality. Along this process, the conception, creation and evolution of each work resembles a ritual of exploration, of alchemy, of experimentation at their studio / laboratory with materials and forms until the pieces finally emerge. Their personal concerns join the influx of Seville, Andalusia and Spain; Its culture, art, folklore, technical processes and artistic tradition are present, mixed, assembled, fused in one way or another in each one of their pieces.
