Silla Thonet número 14 | Borja López Cotelo

The chair number 14 emerged from the factory of Michael Thonet in 1859. He did not receive a name, he simply identified with the number 14 according to practical criteria.

Skilled workers and patients were […]

On the other side of the street, the Tivoli faces its dreamlike exuberance to the strict geometry that Arne Jacobsen drew for his tower in the Center of Copenhagen. But in the lobby of the Radisson, everything seems to respond […]

Ant Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

Arne Jacobsen considered himself, above all, an architect. But the transcendence of his furniture has made him recognized as an industrial designer, something he always tried to escape.

His scanty public declarations or written texts demand to be sent to the facts in yes, be perfect these in the shape of building, daily object, architectural project, textile design, drawing, water-color or photography. A minimal distance was separating his study of architecture and his domestic garden, place where it was in […]

Transformar, intervenir, modificar, adaptar… ¿copiar? | Elías Cueto

En una fugaz conversación con Magdalena surgió este tema de la originalidad de los diseños, de cómo y hasta dónde copiar, de lo significativo de un diseño por sus antecedentes y sus referencias… Un ejemplo: 1-380 de Horgenglarus. El fabricante suizo ha desarrollado una gran cantidad de sillas caracterizadas por su diseño contenido y poco provocador. El modelo Classic 1-380 […]

One of “swindle”: the Jacobsen’s KUBEFLEX houses… | Rodrigo Almonacid

To speak about modular homes has never been synonymous of quality. I refer to the architectural quality, that one that so much we admire for his spatial, aesthetic, material, representative values, etc. I do not remember any constructed that has gone on to the posterity and still it continues being a place of peregrination for the professionals and students of […]

Objet trouvé [01]: Arne Jacobsen and the columns of the Olimpeión of Athens | Rodrigo Almonacid

Arne Jacobsen was a great draftsman and even better watercolorist. When he was enjoying a few vacations always his pencils and paintbrushes were accompanying him. He was enjoying this interest, which it was cultivating from his infancy. Always he confessed that it was not any more than it, a mere interest, which did not have any artistic pretension with those […]
