  PiedrasL1

 
 

Piedras is a project that explores the use of stones as a key element for joining different random objects. Often caught into improvised settings,  stones become handy  where heaviness is required.  The project aims to reinterpret  the circumstantial nature of these settings,  by methodically recreating the incidental into different domestic objects. 

In the lamp, the fabricated stones pull down a shroud,  blocking from sight  the structure underneath. As the shape is vaguely revealed,  the blackout veil  can be rearranged wiht the weight of the stones in order to adjust the light.

The sand-cast aluminium stones were originally carved in wood. Along with the shroud and the structure, the elements combine as reference to an improvised setting.

Materials: Metal Structure, Blackout Shroud, Sand-cast aluminium stones
Dimensions: 40 x 40 x 145 cms
Year of production: 2010
