"Castillo" Aluminum Decorative Vase 'Small' by Cooperativa Panorámica

About

Focused on exploring new territories through exercises that reinterpret ideas and perspectives, the Mexican design collective Cooperativa Panorámica - integrated by Joel Escalona, José de la O, Jorge Diego Etienne, Ian Ortega and Moisés Hernández - presents Castillos, a series that takes as a starting point the concept of the fiesta. For this, they made an extensive investigation of what remains hidden before the eyes of the viewer, such as informal manufacturing that is designed to be burned, consumed and discarded. It is in this vernacular process where the practicality and spontaneity of its elaboration are demonstrated. Taking as inspiration the centenary pyrotechnic activity of Estado de México, specifically “toritos”, and “castillos”, Panorámica reflected about this practice since design. Through a collection that takes as a formal element the vase –an elemental and universal object and image– whose parts are joined with knots, inspired by Japanese techniques with natural fibers, they achieve a continuous dialogue between antagonistic concepts. On the one hand, they use metal instead of wood or hemp, turning permanent what initially was ephemeral, and on the other hand, they create a tension between the utilitarian and the non-functional. They also generate a game between emptiness and matter, which highlights the shapes and contours that are created in the negative space, making visible the work of the artisans that generate these structures.
