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 volumes that form “Candelera 03” are related in an abstract way to river stones. Organic and natural elements that, like the piece, recall history, change and the passage of time.
