Poli-Piel is my first solo show commissioned by Madrid-based gallery Machado-Muñoz. Based on the Structural Skin material as a common thread, the collection includes: a contemporary valet, a coffee table, a chair, a side table, two table lamps, a mirror and a tray. Those eight unique pieces are the result of a further exploration on leather and its structural possibilities paired together with sheet materials like marble, aluminum and glass.
As a spin off from the study conducted to conceive those pieces, a new principle was identified: by rolling and gluing a piece of leather against a coniform shape I discovered a self-standing structure that could hosts a light source. This principle germinated in two conical table lamps. This embryo constitutes a new take on his consistent structural exercises.
