Description

The “Swan” Centerpiece is made by scanned details of the benches that can be found alongside the Albert Embankment, in London. The top part is a printed miniature of the bench’s side itself. The bottom part is an elaborate pattern created by multiplying the swan’s head, while the base is created using the bench’s lion feet.

The piece is part of the “Chimeras of a High Tide”, a collection of artifacts created using traditional ceramic techniques and rapid prototyping mediums (3D printing, photogrammetry) leading to a result where the original can be hardly distinguished from its reproduction.

”The project started from my walks around the city of London, where with the eyes of a foreigner, I developed a particular fascination with the ornate Elements of Victorian mass-produced furniture. As a Greek person I am used to living amongst the ruins of past grandeur, so I was intrigued by the paradox of the Victoriana, where the latest means of industrial production were expressed through revivalism.”

About the designer


Natalia Triantafylli is a Greek designer and maker based in London. She holds an MA from the Royal College of Art in Design Products (class of 2021), where she was awarded with a full scholarship by the Burberry Design Foundation. With a background in design and ceramics her work is characterized by an animistic perspective towards \'things\'. She explores schemas such as luxury, fetish and wonder for their power to create gateways to imaginary worlds. She uses these constructions to point to the rarity of the mundane, concluding that there is no need for a new reality but for a fresh pair of eyes.

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.
