SHHH THE HOPE KEEPER

This project reflects on the possibility of giving room for hope in our
space through a mural where we can save our desires, secrets, plans,
hidding written papers in the small cells that constitute it.
Its shape is inspired by small colonies of crustaceans (picorocos) found
in Chilean Coasts which are attached to rocks or other sea animals.
These marine pictures bring to mind the most beautiful memories of our
childhood, beach days, those days where happiness and hope were
infinite.
Its geometry aims to preserve the formal expression of the natural
image with as few elements as possible, reflecting on how far the loss of
resolution and rationalization of nature are able to resist the expression
of their origin. It is organized as a regular tessellation of convex
hexagons type 8, with 5 variable extrusions and openings. Variation
depends on the proximity to the central axis of the piece. The closer to
the axis, the greater the extrusion and opening.
Its material is gold anodized aluminum laser cut with precuts designed
to be folded and assembled by hand. (digitally handcrafted)
It is our first project for Gallerie Gosserez in Paris and manufactured by
Den Herder Production House.
This Project will be launched at PAD London 2013 (Pavilion of Design and
Arts)
