This piece belongs to a collection named Binomios presented for the first time this October on Design Week México.
Binomios is a three pieces collection: a coffee table, a plant stand and a wall lamp. The conceptual line that dominates this collection is the refection of an inherent human condition: the constant longing of search for transforming reality.
This constant search results in a contradiction between the natural way in which we appropriate the reality and the form that we want to give it; we transform it and experience it to satisfy the desire to control the nature. This set of objects supports in itself the contradiction of the outside`s inside, the artificial in the natural.
With these three pieces we seek to define a metaphor confronting the relation of similarity with the archetypes of nature. The Binomios collection lays on the table the essential of the natural world of which every time we’re more distant.
The table was elaborated with a polished stone cover at the top part, and a mountain chain wrought to the back, which you can discover by the reflection of the mirror below.
This piece achieves its function when the user reveals this hidden metaphor below.
The structure of the base is shaped by cold rolled powder coated metal bars welded to plates that support the surfaces. The top cover is sculpted in a marble block named “Monterrey”; the low part is cut in bronze mirror.
