Superilla de Sant Antoni | Leku Studio

El Eixample de Barcelona caracterizado por su tejido uniforme, regular y extensivo, muestra una ciudad sólida, mixta y altamente densificada con un espacio público consolidado que afronta la necesidad de reprogramarse para dar respuesta a una nueva realidad social, ambiental y económica aceleradamente cambiante. La falta de verde urbano y de espacios de relación, sumado a la situación de emergencia […]

Chair Times. Una silla, una época: de 1800 hasta hoy

“Las sillas son importantes testigos de nuestro tiempo. Lo son independientemente de si tienen una novedad relacionada con el momento actual, es decir, si expresan una moda o representan la tendencia de una época. Son retratos de sus usuarios y reflejan el proceso de producción que les da vida. De ahí que las sillas nos permitan reconocer y comprender una […]

Paimio Chair | Borja López Cotelo

En la Europa de los años 30 la tuberculosis era una de las principales preocupaciones sanitarias. Por todo el continente se construían sanatorios para tratar a los infectados con una rutina que incluía baños de sol y largas horas de descanso respirando aire fresco. De acuerdo con estos ideales higienistas, e inspirado por el Zonnestraal de Duiker, Alvar Aalto proyectó […]

Silla BKF Chair | Borja López Cotelo

La Guerra Civil abocó a la emigración a muchos españoles. Aquellos que pudieron elegir, no siempre decidieron quedarse. Antonio Bonet Castellana había nacido en la España de 1913, como Coderch y como Alejandro de la Sota. Pero a Bonet el inicio de la guerra le sorprendió en París. Antonio Bonet había comenzado a trabajar con Sert y Torres i Clavé en 1932, […]

Thinking with your hands. New seven lamps of artisan beauty | Izaskun Chinchilla Architects

Craftsmanship was very prestigious and received great public attention with the Arts & Crafts movement, which was born in England and spread through Europe before Modernity. Our exhibition design wanted to honor a fundamental book of that time “The Seven Lamps of Architecture”, written in 1849 by John Ruskin because, although it is dedicated to architecture, the reflections on craftsmanship […]

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 […]

Restless asses, infinite seats

Jimmy Durham said that the chairs delimit our bodies in order to become essential and that architecture – the holy spirit of a ghostly and elusive entity linked to the State – was in charge of inventing them. In the same way, hundreds of artists and writers have spent decades showing us the role of the most restless asses in […]

Juan’s Apartment | vora

Before our intervention, in this apartment overlapping stages could be appreciated. Several uses through time accumulated layer over layer. At a first glance one could feel a strange and blurred atmosphere. But beyond confusion we could appreciate the power of its original defining features: a sequence of linked spaces, separated by a powerful rhythm of bearing walls; the distinction of […]

Egg Chair. Arne Jacobsen | Borja López Cotelo

When crossing the door of the Radisson SAS, hotel, on the bustling Vesterbrogade avenue, something strange happens. Time seems suspended. 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. Jacobsen believed that design, architecture and the arts could function as a whole, according to the ideas of gesamtkunstwerk. This ideal of artistic synthesis led him to design the chair 3100 for […]

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 […]

Bureau Optifisk NV in Herentals | RDVA. Rik De Vooght Architecten

The relation between the built environment and the person is a dialogue where both take part. The architecture, through space, light, colour, materialness, temperature, etc., produces a series of physical and emotional sensations that the person perceives. At the same time, the movements and behaviours of the person, or the use of space and its comprehension, basically, how we understand […]

Using efficiently the ground is a main necessity in the structure of the cities form the 21st century. Cities today require an intelligent densification and sensitive to the movement and human activities; an exercise of design where the distribution of space uses and the voids that act like lungs, meeting or transition points, establish a scale ratio that optimises services […]

Papal chairs | Elías Cueto – Xosé Suárez

The aspect and the history of the chairs of “his holiness” are illustrative of the claimed dignity to which they serve as seat. Of between the used ones for the pontiffs it emphasizes “the gestatoria”. Left definitively by Juan Paul II, it is the obliged modal in what to papal chairs it refers. Curiously, some voices indicate the interest of […]

Are we softening ourselves? | Elías Cueto

One of his first works is Lost in sofa, a somewhat ironic version of the Kubus sofa designed by Josef Hoffmann. In 1910 the architect of the Secession submitted […]

This lecture series will feature four pioneers whose careers gave a new meaning to architecture: Eileen Gray […]
