Description

“Obreras” (Spanish word for female construction workers) is a collection of vases made out of construction waste found on the streets.

The plant that is born out of rubble. The apparently fragile overcomes the unbreakable. Why is a vase associated with the feminine? Why is the construction work to the masculine? From this context, we bring materials and objects from the construction sites, cold and anodyne, to the opposite, the warm and affectionate world of the vase. We propose a turn of the screw by completely changing the default use of construction materials.

About the designer


Todo to do is a common project from Elena and Selina Feduchi. We are sisters and have been working together in this project since 2018. Todo to do reflects our way of thinking and what we believe in. \"Todo\" in Spanish means \"everything\", combined with the verb \"to do\" we make a pun (wordplay) since we defend the idea that: \"everything is done, but at the same time everything remains to be done.\" When we talk about todo to do, we talk about sustainability and reuse of materials. We work mainly through the observation of things that are interesting for us. Rather than focusing on its design, we are interested in the everyday life of the objects and the people around them.

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.
