Description

Assuming the weight and texture of an object to later find out it is nothing like what you expected is a surprising and pleasant occurrence. The “Sponge” Table hopes to achieve this for its observers.

Made from a carbonated aluminum panel, a common Chinese building material, once painted becomes completely unrecognizable as metal. The sponge table’s simple construction is intended to highlight the use of material, extenuating the alchemist quality of elevating a standard building material to a luxury good. The table is constructed of two raw panels with exposed pores and one top panel featuring a smooth surface on one side.

Curated by

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.
