This project is a reflection on the “Patios”, materialized through the creation of a seating system. With them, the character of close coexistence between people is reinterpreted, where tradition is revived in a common delimited space.
The “Patios” is a traditional type of building in Córdoba (Andalucía). Due to a hot, dry climate, homes in Córdoba were built with a central patio even back in the days of the Romans. This tradition was continued by the Moors and persists in many homes even today. Filling the central patio with plants and water features has always been a way to keep local homes cool. It was a place of encounter, coexistence, work, and culture, where the daily life of families was articulated through the close fraternity of the women who lived there. Here, several generations of women and children interacted, shared work, leisure, and orally passed on their knowledge.
The structure – manufactured in MDF – corresponds to the space that defines the seating area. The seat, on the other hand, wants to be the witness of the tradition, being a piece handmade in enea by local artisans.
Stay up to date on the world of contemporary collectible design through opinion leaders and key players from the global design scene.

My work is focused on the relationship between human and his environment through objects. I am always interested in exploring new materials and new ways of experiencing the world.
Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times.
Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M.
Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”.
The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
