Nacho Carbonell No. 17 "Twins" in Iron Frame, Iron Mesh and Paper Pulp, 2014


Nacho Carbonell No. 17 "Twins" is made from iron frame, iron mesh and paper pulp in 2014. If each of Carbonell's creations are living organisms, then his collections, too, grow and evolve over time. "Twins" is a variation of his 2009 award-winning project, titled "Evolution". Shaped like cocoons, Evolutions's iconic chairs create a private space for a person or persons to recline. "Twins" comes in two. As the surroundings change, so do their functions. They are straight-backed, elongated, and slender, specific to the city-scape of New York. The papier mâché forms light up and intertwine, bringing users closer together in honor of the city that never sleeps.
