Candelera is a collection focused on creating large format sculptural lighting pieces from a functional approach.
To accomplish the balance of the composition, multiple parameters such as volume, mass, and density, as well as the distance between the elements, are calculated and projected simultaneously from the shaping of every piece of the system.
Simple geometrical gestures in the manufacturing process, translate 2D surfaces to complex double curved surfaces put together to shelter hidden light sources.
Digital manufacturing process complemented with skilled craftmanship results in a raw and minimalistic composition reminiscent of organic shapes and structures.
The organic triangular volumes of “Candelera 02” remind us of shell-like shapes that appear to be floating in the air. The curvature of the different surfaces flows naturally in a vertical direction giving the composition great balance and rhythm.
