This tubular steel shelve forms part of the Series O.F.I.S (Obejcts From Intersticial Space) by Lucas Muñoz, an ongoing research of industrial material’s potential for narrative. 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.
