Description

The “Yacaman Table” is part of the Yacaman collection, the first series of luminaires designed by Paola Jose. The project has a personal and profound meaning: It is a tribute to her father and grandfather, both doctors, brilliant, and both departed.

These luminous objects are the creation of a living memory, a memory that will remain present, infinite. When Paola was a child, she used to visit them at their medical office and saw these giant metallic objects, these luminaires that directed light towards the patient’s wound to heal. Now, these objects make sense to her, to her work, to her memories, to her lineage.

Convex figures project a distorted light yet warm and subtle. A golden light expands, travels through space, and heals, just like the great Dr. Yacaman.

The “Yacaman Table” is a decorative luminous object that is made from a Mexican volcanic rock, recinto. This piece warms up the space with its light, and the beautiful recinto adorns the space.

 

For installation, use latex gloves and for cleaning, use a microfiber cloth with alcohol.

About the designer


Paola Jose

Paola Jose is a Mexican lighting designer, founder of SOMBRA an architectural lighting design studio based in Mexico City. Paola studied mechanical engineering at the University of Texas and a master of science in architectural lighting design at Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work emphasizes the opposition to the over illumination and her constant fight to pursue the power of darkness in the creation of spaces that oscillate between the poetical and the practical, echoing her constant explorations on nocturnal geographies. Her primary interests are the search of darkness on this over-illuminated spaces/cities. Darkness has become a luxury, we are so disconnected to this very natural phenomenon that artificial light has taken away from us. Likewise the past years, loss has become a primary inspiration on her work. The Yacaman collection is the first series of luminaires designed by Paola Jose.

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
