FOLLOWING THE TIDE
This collection is inspired by the lagoons and cenotes in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico: the movement of the tide and the change in topography reveal different materials shaping the intersection of earth and water. "Following the Tide" is an explosion erupted from the circular nucleus, dispersed into crushed Forest Green marble and aggregates of recuperated brass. It is composed in a pigmented resin on an oxidized bronze base.

LOST IN TRANSITION
Due to the technological era we live in and the social pattern caused by social media, we no longer are focused on physical interactions rather on virtual ones. “Lost in Transition” is an urban object-space comprised of two chairs connected with an arch. It enforces a physical face-to-face interaction while the periphery stools focuses on a solitary moment for writing, reading or enjoying the surrounding.
Blurring the boundaries between object and space, this versatile structure adapts to the ephemerality of spaces and enables numerous spatial configurations in various urban environments in the city.
