A family of furniture pieces that invites us to look, reflect and above all to touch, explore and understand.
To understand the union of two materials in principle very similar that will only reveal their true nature with the pass of time and the interaction with the elements. Elements such as water, the human skin or oxygen that will transform its appearance progressively and organically in order to obtain a unique and unrepeatable result.
Unrepeatable because only the pass of time during which the piece will be on show and the way in which visitors interact with it will give shape and define its final look.

This whole experience was created for Perception, a show curated by Sanna Völker for the Barcelona Design Week 2018. The show questioned our relationship with design by raising awareness about the full experience of the objects and the processes behind them.

Materials: Iron, Stainless steel + water + air + touch…

AGE prototypes were beautifully crafted by LUCEM. Thanks Xavier and team!
