The Cartela bookshelf is composed of several long wood shelves and supporting steel bars threading through shorter panels which can rotate in different directions. “We took on a structural investigation into the basic concepts of triangulation and the intersection of planes,” explain at Esrawe.
“The location of the vertical axes of the piece, as well as the position of its palettes, dictates the possible configurations of the set, and allows great versatility in terms of language and expression of the design.”
The reconfigurable Kanji dining table can be arranged in two different solutions by flipping upside down the lower part under the table top. In one configuration, a supporting bar holds the top while three legs splay out at either end.
In the other solution the supporting bar runs along the floor with the legs angled to meet the top. “The design responds specifically to the areas of no contact with the user, physically reflecting this ‘absence’ in its construction.”
The INTERVALO collection features also two seats. With the Hacienda chairs, Esrawe studio wanted to contrast to the traditional furniture ornaments in haciendas, traditional Mexican residential estates. The design “is exposed as a balanced composition that subtly interacts with the space and that translates as a reference of furniture of simple and timeless character.”
Covered in black leather to complement the wood, the Tandem chair is designed to look like it is made of one piece. The design “integrates two initially opposite elements, one dominantly organic and the other rational.”
The INTERVALO collection debuted at the 10th edition of Design Week Mexico.
