NEW SCULPTURE ABOUT TO BE DELIVERED
11 July 2017, Jalisco, Mexico
Our work aims for human connectivity. Always. As an emotional enhancer, this new piece is about to be delivered at a beach house in the state of Jalisco. A “geometrical dream”. Its organical design subtly entangles the eye with the firm sense of materiality and depth. We perceive this creation as an architectural ghost, a window, a sensibility reactor. Its proud owner “needed it”.
NEW PROJECT: I DO
10 July 2017, State of Mexico
Love. The sense of destiny and the power of the forest. This project was commissioned for the wedding of our client's daughter. As a token of will and perpetuity, this piece becomes a tridimensional document. It withholds emotions and belonging. It represents duality: a man and a woman standing, but also the threshold onto a new life. Named I DO the sculpture is made of carved wood and it is naturally treated so it will eventually go back to its roots. It is a tribute to transformation.
