Trough is the review of two of the main utensils of roasting and serving the famous Segovian suckling pig: the tray and the broth pearl. The design of the elements do not break with the tradition of their predecessors, presenting the same materials and finishes, although playing with their forms and functionality.

Fusion is a collection of unique pieces that combine raw and natural elements that are gradually fading into technical material produced by humans. The objects appear to be strange and not easily identifiable, mixing archaism and technology and dissolving the boundaries between industrial rigor and mineral irregularity.

4th Dimension Watch

The 4th Dimension Watch is composed of a thick circular case and cognac leather band. Although a relatively simple design, the watch has a complex balance of materials that includes concrete, stainless steel, bronze, and leather. Taiwanese designers Sean Yu and Yi-Ting Cheng imagined linking time and space into a visual form when they designed the 4th Dimension Watch. The shape is designed to take the shape of a spiral staircase, while the gold-hued hands move up and down. The effect is a careful and sophisticated interplay of shadow and light.

clay self watering can

image


Clay is a self-watering can ceramics.
The microporous structure of the fired ceramic at a relatively low temperature allows the water to infiltrate through the wall of the object. The water´s path ends at the roots of the plant which absorbs its required nutrients. The chromatic relationship with the pot on which the watering can rests allows it to integrate into space and to blend itself to the environment.

chocolate textures

image

There are many factors that determine a chocolate’s taste.
In coming up with a new chocolate concept, we turned out attention not to such factors, but to the chocolate’s “shape.”
The 9 different types of chocolate are made within the same size, 26x26x26mm,
featuring pointed tips, hollow interiors, smooth or rough surface textures–
and, while the raw materials are identical, the distinctive textures create different tastes.
Each chocolate is directly named after Japanese expressions used to describe texture.

The original idea of this project is to make people aware of the moment
of concealing and revealing light. To make it a functional lamp, instead of a switch, light is activated when raised(on) or laid flat(off). Also by creating the side facets, a natural
handle is made which also directs the light when the brick
sits on it’s side.

An everyday object transformed into a jewel. Two metal rings catch a napkin in order to make a breadbasket. The shape reminds embroidery hoops, so it’s a good chance to embroider a wish that accompanies us in everyday actions. It is a very suitable object for keeping a promise alive; it has many similarities with wedding rings.

The Tavola Arcaica is a conceptual project that relies on our ability to build a strong emotional bond between people and food with everyday objects, that goes beyond their use.
The use of the first tools made from stone was the first technological discovery of our species.
However, we have assimilated their use in a way that we no longer give them the importance they deserve.

In Mediterranean culture, “dysfunction” can be seen as the anthropological ability to find a way round, an ad hoc solution to make up for a shortcoming.
Here, the bowls gain a new ‘stability’ from an added support or prop which holds them up. It is an instinctive gesture, not designed as the only or definitive solution.

Edwin is a fully repairable and sustainable fruit squeezer. Some time ago, products that accompanied us were long lasting and reparaible, made of natural and sustainable materials. Nowadays, actual electrodomestics have an expiry date. Several reasons like programmed obsolescence or irreparaible designs make the products easily spoilable, adding that it is almost impossible for it to have a second life or a enter a proper disposal cycle. Edwin was born from the intention of producing everlasting electrodomestics.
