Bauhausmädels. A Tribute to Pioneering Women Artists

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. This fact largely summarizes the revolutionary philosophy that Thonet introduced in the production of furniture. In the mid-nineteenth century the furniture was manufactured by hand. Skilled workers and patients were […]

Red and blue chair. Gerrit T. Rietveld | Borja López Cotelo

In 1917 the cartography of the new Europe was drawn to the rhythm of the Allied cannons. Gerrit T. Rietveld, busy in the daily work of his furniture workshop in Utrech, remained oblivious to this reality. He preferred to draw the plans of a new chair. Gerrit T. Rietveld had worked in his father’s workshop since 1900. At twelve he […]

Designers, artists and craftsmen. Or what do we mean by innovation | Elías Cueto

Innovation is a term whose meaning is broad. Referring to wood helps to specify the scope of work, but it does not record it sufficiently. There is innovation in wood linked to consolidated fields of knowledge. From forest engineering, or the mechanics of materials to industrial transformation or the chemical digestion of wood, all these fields have given rise to […]

The ministries of 1984 | Jorge Gorostiza

Studying the cities and armored buildings against the aerial bombings, I remembered the design with a warhead shape made by Terence Verity,, the scenographer of the movie 1984 (Michael Anderson, 1956), for the London ministries, which George Orwell describes in his novel: “The Ministry of Truth: it was different, to an astonishing extent, from any other object that came to view.” […]

Against the art | José Ramón Hernández Correa

Some time ago that wanted to give up some philippic against the art, against this concept of art that us has to all encorsetados and sterile. Already it is nice of art. Let’s do the things well, hagámoslas accurately, with attention, with intelligence, and dejémosnos of foolishness. The art, in general, is a concept more that debatable, but to include […]

The architecture in front of the death of the art | José Ramón Hernández Correa

The artistic forefronts always have looked at the architecture of an ambiguous way. On one hand, the artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, musicians …) they have had always the label hung of chisgarabises, and have sought with zeal to put in his troupe some architect, who seemed to give him venerability to the group or movement that was. (An architect […]

The cinema in 2024, by Griffith | Jorge Gorostiza

I have found an article written by David W. Griffith published in The Film Daily on June 22, 1924, with permission of Collier’s Weekly, titled «The Movies 100 Years From Now». Always it is risked to predict what will happen in the future and rarely, in spite of what some clairvoyants say, is succeeded. In this case it is curious that the filmmaker […]

De muro a muro | Irene Gil

[…]”cuando un ciudadano, en la actualidad, acude a ciertos lugares de esparcimiento o pasea ocasionalmente por su ciudad, se puede llevar la sorpresa de que muchos de los espacios por los que transita son inhóspitos, culturalmente zafios, formalmente desastrosos, físicamente decrépitos, higiénicamente insalubres y emocionalmente patéticos”. Arte público: naturaleza y ciudad. Javier Maderuelo ¿Qué hacer con estos lugares? Estos son […]
