Description

It all started in 2017, when I developed a technique that enabled me to convert a small amount of veneer into hollow, conical objects. A technique that requires little material and produces even less waste. By laser cutting or water jetting sheet material into concentric layers and assembling them by hand, I obtain organically shaped objects which are handmade in my studio. They are produced in small scale and mostly on demand. All the objects are cataloged within the “Stratum Series” collection.

Stratum Basim is the third piece in this “Stratum Series”. For this piece, we’ve put the focus on the costly and irreversible waste of a product that has taken millions of years to complete. To let people think twice about marble and other precious materials, “Stratum Basim” appears in the form of a totem as statement. From a 2cm flat plate of marble of 60 by 80cm, we created a solid looking object of 40cm high by 30cm wide.

Stratum Basim is made exclusively on request. Each time, we use a leftover piece of marble, which is more difficult to use for the company and would lead to waste.

Especially for Adorno you’re able to order a Travertin edition. Each piece is numbered as a piece unique. All pieces are made to order and can’t be returned after payment.

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.
