Monolithic objects in Cobarbalita stone
This new series of objects developed by the Chilean design studio bravo Continues with the logic of territorial design that characterizes, from some time to now, their work; local design and production, articulating productive methods, technologies and materials taken from Chilean geography.
Each object present in the series is conceived from technical and formal experimentation, as in sculpture, beyond pursuing a practical or functional operation, these objects assume a plastic and emotional commitment that allows its use to be freely interpreted. In fact the series suggest a paradigm shift by changing and reducing the sculptural scale, commonly associated to architecture and public space, to a domestic and object level. Composed of more than 80 ditierent pieces, The Monolith Series were developed over a year, and conceived under the logic of the monolith , using a single rock that contains various minerals and components to give way to the final object. The research phase for this project focuses on raw material and the exploration in its physical-mechanical possibilities
