Living organisms, emerging from the fingertips of who knows what bizarre creator. And most of all: with a well-defined personality, eccentric, just like their maker. You can see series of table-lamps "Cocoon" created by Spanish artist and designer Nacho Carbonell together with Carpenters Workshop Gallery, at his solo show "Light Mesh" until November 20th.
The exhibition presents a selection of sculptural lamps from his series "Cocoon", created together with the gallery and made with a unique form of plaster that incorporates sand and textile hardener, arranged around a steel frame invented by the designer-artist.
The four objects of the series are made of organically-shaped, semi-transparent cocoons in different shapes. Each piece is kept together by a sand-colored mesh, illuminated from the inside so that the light filters and is diffused with a natural warmth.
All one-off pieces, these four table-lamp hybrids seem to suggest the appearance of expressive beings, fantastic and fascinating creatures.
