Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Hometown: Buenos Aires.
Studio location: Barcelona.
Describe what you make: I create in the zone between industrial design, craft, architecture, sculpture, conceptual art, installation, and 3D digital art.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: The Hortensia Chair was the result of an amazing and fun exploration. I never thought something that reflects my sense of play would be so accepted and requested.
Describe the problem your work solves: I solve problems that need time to live with. I like to create more problems before solving the main one. This way, I can spend more time co-living with the problem. It’s the only way to really feel the necessity of solving it.
Describe the project you are working on now: My work is mostly digital—it’s an amazing way of creating. But I want to grow in both disciplines, as an artist that thinks design processes.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: I’m very excited for a solo exhibition at Chamber, opening in Buenos Aires on Feb. 23 and 24, called “Complicated name for the show.” I’m preparing an installation and three furniture pieces—it’s a great challenge to produce work that wasn’t designed for this physical world.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: I prefer silence while I work, and music when I chill. I don’t snack in between meals. I don’t even eat breakfast! I’ve been practicing intermittent fasting for at least two years.
What you do when you’re not working: I create more work, really! I also love to spend time with my wife, Mica Lucas, and practice calisthenics in sunny Barcelona.
Sources of creative envy: Maurizio Cattelan, Ettore Sottsass, Dimore Studio, James Turrell, Gyula Kosice, Erwin Wurm, Marijn van der Poll, Max Lamb, and Anish Kapoor.
The distraction you want to eliminate: Emails.
Concrete or marble? Marble marble marble!
High-rise or townhouse? Barcelona.
Aliens or ghosts? 100% aliens.
Dark or light? Light.
