Description

The Rainbow Bench, designed by Lilia Corona in 2017, serves as the centerpiece of our Happiness collection. Inspired by the unsolvable mysteries of our childhood, which have transformed into fixations and longings in our adult lives, this group of objects embodies the idea of joy as resistance. Happiness is a series of playful objects crafted to bring smiles. With these objects, we construct our own small world of extravagant fantasies and stories with happy endings. This series reflects upon urban playgrounds, which symbolize the fusion of politics and youthful idealism in 20th-century Mexico—the formative years of our childhood—where designs were influenced by the intersection of public policy and urban sculpture.
It is a sweet and cheerful bench designed to bring a smile to your face. Crafted from resin and colored natural stones, it forms a durable, practical, and lightweight terrazzo. This bench is made with love in Mexico City.

The Rainbow Bench consists of three independent modules in the colourway burnt red, light pink, and orange. Each module is equipped with felt tips at its base.

About Platalea Studio Visit Showroom →

Platalea Studio is an artistic and design duo hailing from Mexico, composed of the nomad-born talents, Lilia Corona and Rodrigo Lobato. Their creative journey is a profound exploration of the intersection between Mexico's rich cultural heritage and the ever-evolving contemporary world. This dynamic space serves as a canvas for delving into the cultural crossroads and transcendent experiences of modernity, while also providing glimpses into the future. Platalea Studio's artistic quest encompasses a diverse array of inspirations, including distinct histories, mystical landscapes, culinary traditions, family customs, and the intricate tapestry of gender and sexuality expressions. They discover enchantment in the syncretism that defines our contemporary global landscape. Their art is a translation of the harmonious coalescence of diverse lives and ways of existence, transforming them into sculptures and installations that seamlessly merge craftsmanship, the human form, belief systems, and technology. At the heart of their creative expression lies a commitment to imbue their creations with kindness. Their work features organic and whimsical lines, as well as a vibrant palette that evokes a sense of lightness and humor. Platalea Studio's creations inhabit enigmatic realms, existing somewhere between myth and history, urban and rural landscapes, and the tangible world of materials and the intangible essence of the human spirit. Above all, their approach to life is infused with joy, not only as an end in itself but also as a form of resistance and a source of boundless inspiration.
