Description

This Tubular Steel Chair forms part of the Series O.F.I.S (Objects From Intersticial Space), an ongoing research of industrial material’s potential for narrative. Muñoz designed this Tubular Chair as an exploration of the structural potential of different industrial components. He wanted to showcase their ability to perform a function within a domestic environment. Muñoz constructed the seat from galvanised steel ventilation pipes and elbow connectors found in his atelier, as well as sheets of copper taken from a metal junkyard. Taking the shape and mechanic properties of those interstitial materials as a starting point, he draws a line that crosses from practical means to what function a domestic environment requires. Materials meant for behind and in between our walls (architectural interstitial spaces) cross their designed boundaries to take their place in the room.

While conserving their personality as engineered objects meant for constructional use, the purposeful arrangement under which they get combined, entitles them with an upgraded visual and functional value. These pieces bring to light a re-interpretational approach to matter consumption and industrial standardization, that opens up to a myriad of possible variations.

About Lucas Muñoz Muñoz Visit Showroom →

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz (1983) works in the field of art and design. Through craft and travel, his work is mainly based between the Netherlands and Spain. However, has recently settled back in Madrid, where his studio & atelier resides now. His practice explores redefinitions of the functionality and materiality of use-objects, spaces and engineering. Working out with his hands a field that intertwines the need for use of our daily-life artifacts with the capacity they have to carry and embody meaning from a creative and critical approach. Lucas Muñoz Muñoz has been making and producing since his early twenties. He founded eStudio enPieza! in Madrid, with David Tamame and his work,  with them travelled the world and became part of private and public design collections (as London´s Royal Science Museum permanent funds). Since then until now, in his current location, Tetuan (Madrid, Spain), the designer and artist has passed through Carabanchel (2008-12) and Eindhoven (2012-22), developing a body of work that occupies a wide spectrum that ranges from furniture to skateboards or Sound Systems. In all of them, Lucas has always maintained a balance between the conceptual and the material, being a designer who thinks with his hands and seeks a distillation of the concept of each action that his creative process requires. This has made him develop a career closely linked to sustainability and material circularity, having been the winner of the Dezeen, FRAME and ICON Awards. In addition to being a workshop maker, he also develops conceptual and critical work based on local and context-driven research. Total works include the “Temporal” Collection for Machado Muñoz Gallery, “Materia Gris“ Exhibition at Centro Centro Cibeles, Listening Party & Exhibition at Nave La Mosca, to a more holistic level, MO de Movimiento (from which his studio received the Dezeen Award and FRAME Magazine award, both for sustainability), to a more retail and commercial use “ON Running” installation and furniture design (London, Zurich & Miami). These works have shown his capacity to revisit his field of work through a creative commitment that brings a lateral approach into every area he steps in. One that takes what is in situ, puts in value local craft and materials, brings in ex situ knowledge, addresses consumption and pollution and includes the context, with its social and cultural layers, as a departure point. Many times his work finds shape into objects and most of his individual pieces find home at gallery exhibitions, hospitality, retail spaces, domestic spaces as well as private collectors. Some others remain thought exercises that become sensorial digressions about our social and man-made landscapes. A practice that most of times renders physical in his atelier but also finds shape during interventions abroad, being the later ones mainly in collaboration with local creatives or cultural institutions. Some of his projects also result in video, 3D scans, sound pieces and ephemeral interventions that consolidate a body of work that takes design as the center of an area which extends into other disciplines and fields of knowledge. His approach addresses design in an extended view, and considers it a language that can be articulated, not only by objects, in a way that intends to be more dialogical than dialectical.
