Description

Peter Donders’ “Vines” chair was inspired by the organic lines of the famous Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, named for Horta’s nature-derived aesthetic. The lines of the chair seem to grow and interact like a living vine; this formal freedom is exactly what fascinates Peter Donders about working with 3D-printing. There’s no need for Donders to limit to his imagination.While it would be practically impossible create this shape by hand, 3D-printing makes it possible to produce incredibly complex shapes. Afterwards Donders finds the most appropriate technique to translate his 3D-printed model into a casted aluminum chair.

About the designer


Peter Donders (born 1965) worked for fifteen years as a craft-furniture designer and maker before beginning to integrate computer-based tools into his work. Now he combines his background as a craftsman with his expansive technological knowledge — the computer is now fully part of his production process. For every object Donders makes, he pushes the borders of existing technology and techniques. Besides his work with carbon fiber, he loves to explore the possibilities of 3D printing. Due to his fascination with the leading Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, Donders\' creations feature organic lines and serene shapes, which maintain nonetheless an interesting and exiting aesthetic harmony.

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.
