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. The Onyx has been used in prehispanic Mexico to create religious objects and jewelry, I like to use “Mexican Onyx” because of its ancient use and the particular green nuances that makes it so unique.
For me the juxtaposition of onyx and resin is the contrast between precious nature and modern men creation.

The designer

Profile Photo
Adrian Cruz Elements
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.
