Description

Inspired by the Renaissance floor plans of the villas, the light bulb is erected by two plates in crystal resin, displaying a weightless balancing act.
The three-dimensional effect of the resin, it’s lightness and even the smell, brings me back to my childhood when I used to play with the objects that my grandfather created, but the use of raw materials have been part of my life too; my father is a geologist so he taught me the properties and characteristics of minerals.

About the designer


In 1946, my grandfather Chema, started to work with resin in his small atelier in Mexico City. He created figures such as toys, buttons and household products, but his creativity went beyond the commercial use of the resin. He started to experiment with new forms, encapsulating flowers and insects to create magnificent artworks.

 

When I was a child I used to play with these objects, fascinated by the translucency and the three-dimensional illusion that light creates through the resin. After finishing my studies in Architecture in Italy, I realized that those objects were still in my mind waiting to be revived and played again. Today, using the unique and sophisticated technique that Chema developed, I mix colours inspired by the Mexican culture with pure forms in onyx and marble as learnt through my architect\'s journey.

 

Through the objects that my grandfather created, he transmitted me his passion. Although I never met him, each piece I design is like discovering something new about Chema.

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.
