Connected. 9 diseñadores, 3 frondosas, 1 taller

En el mundo del diseño, los creativos y los fabricantes han tenido que adaptar sus procesos utilizando nuevas tecnologías para trabajar juntos a distancia y, a menudo, operar desde nuevas oficinas improvisadas. Connected (Conectados) es un experimento destinado a explorar cómo los diseñadores […]

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 […]

La lógica del desmontaje | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

Toda obra de arquitectura resulta en principio un ente encapsulado, un todo inalterable que recibimos en herencia para su estudio o habitación en el mejor de los casos: obras maestras nos decían, obras que pertenecen a su tiempo, como aquellos insectos primitivos primorosamente conservados en ámbar a la espera de ser descubiertos por algún estudioso en la materia. Sin embargo, […]

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, […]

Alberto Corral Corral · Ubuild, a new construction system in wood

We have seen how the architects these years have recovered and covered diverse fields of work, even explored in some less common ones such as research and development of products or systems, mainly populated by other professionals. Although I+D is an area that has not been very prolific in architecture lately, we find some cases such as the Galician architect, […]

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 […]

Leica | Borja López Cotelo

Por suerte, nuestra mente no está formada por compartimentos estancos. Al menos, no la de Oskar Barnack. Había trabajado desde 1911 en el desarrollo de una cámara de cine para la empresa Leitz, pero todo cambió cuando se preguntó qué pasaría si exportase ciertas ideas al diseño de una cámara fotográfica. Las incómodas planchas metálicas hacían de la fotografía una […]

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 […]

Prada Poole. The Perishable Architecture of Soap Bubbles

The literary magazine El Urogallo devoted its first issue of 1974 to a collective reflection on the contemporary human dwelling. One of the most thought-provoking articles in that publication was “La arquitectura perecedera de las pompas de jabón” [The Perishable Architecture of Soap Bubbles] by José Miguel de Prada Poole1.

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 […]

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 […]

Aalto’s fragments | Jorge Meijide

Both Aalto‘s ceramic pieces enter the study of my father in 1974 after his viaje1 to Finland. He had thirty eight years, I had nine, and it would be late some others in knowing of his creator, but since then the Finn occupies a place emphasized in my architectural being. The pieces are of perfect invoice, carefully proportionate, smooth and […]

Are we softening ourselves? | Elías Cueto

Daisuke Motori is a young Japanese architect whose work, the informal and the domestic, is often a source of inspiration and gives rise to objects that go along with an accomplice. 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 […]

Atmosphere and climate. In one of his writings, Olafur Eliasson speaks about the atmospheric time.1 In the introduction to the above-mentioned text, The Museums are Radical, Eliasson develops a small statement of the interaction between time and energy. I do not know exactly why it has turned into artist of head-board of many architects, but it is necessary to admit […]

Parametric architecture and informational design. Beyond mere formalism | Miguel Villegas

The parametricism, or rather, the guru of parametricism, with its ill-fated manifesto has done a lot of damage to those who, like us, work with digital tools trying to stay on this side of formal banality. Parametricism may be a style. The parametric architecture does not. How to explain the differences? Well I do not know very well. Perhaps simply […]
