The Barcelona studio Goula/Figuera launches its own brand to live “home adventures”.
Home Adventures is a new initiative from the Barcelona based Goula/Figuera studio which arises from the need to make certain ideas, which had for too long remained on the margin of their usual design work for other companies, concrete and real.
Through this new brand, products are launched onto the market which due to their experimental nature, morphologic inspiration or innovative production, prove difficult to find in conventional home decor catalogues. Pieces which come to life from the freedom to combine volume and materials and which represent the sheer enjoyment of studio work.
According to the designers Pablo Figuera and Álvaro Goula, the products of Home Adventures “are closer to art than industrial design, and this give us the freedom to be more creative. They are for us an exercise in freedom of expression and flexibility which immerses us in unknown creative territory. They are, by definition, Home Adventures”.
The first product in the collection, called Lines & Dots is a suspended light fitting, as in the words of its creators “decorative illumination is the field of design that gives more freedom to shape and which, as a consequence, is much closer to the world of art”. In the case of Lines & Dots this reality goes one step further: light, a key element, relinquishes all its importance to the material, the metal, in this particular case working as would a sculptor.
The design process was unconventional, starting from thousands of lines and dots drawn in ink on paper. The designers chose a series of eight silhouettes and transferred them into different designs. To reproduce these strokes in the air they chose as material steel rods which are folded and welded by hand by local craftsmen.
Each of the eight different modules can be combined with each other using the cable as a pivot at the end of which there is a metallic capsule which contains in its interior a dimmable led bulb which gives off a warm light and incorporates state of the art technology.
