I Love the Spanish artist Nacho Carbonell. During is years as student we already amazed us with the projects “Dream of sand” and “Pump it up”, and was honoured with Cum Laude. Once graduated he created collections such as Evolution in 2009, which won him nominations to the design of the year by the London Design Museum, and which marked his ongoing collaboration with Galleria Rossana Orlandi. In 2010, a year after being named Designer of the Future by DesignMiami fair organisers, This identity , which defines his actual style of organic forms and rough and colourful finishing textures, is bringing him into an international scene of private collections and museums, such as the Groningen Museum in The Netherlands, and the 2121 Museum in Japan, all attracted by the uniqueness of materials and techniques applied in his works. Nacho currently works with his team in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, were he has established his studio.
In “Time is a Treasure”, Nacho’s newest work he presents his first work incorporating hard stones . The starting point of this project: slices of blue agate, the interior of which was kept by French jewellery houses to create jewellery and clocks.
Is not all about his final works but also about the process, from the fantastic drawings, the small mockups to the final works its just fantastic.
This one you must know, “Pump it up”, is an fantastic project from is early years and it’s just fantastic from visual to concept, looks like an fun way of resting you legs.
The “Tree Chair”, is an ultimate concept of what Nacho’s work is all about… organic objects that come to life to grow or protect, giving them also magnificent textures inspired in nature.
