In collaboration with Alfonoso Patarroyo

The project for the Vestiniña store explores hyperbolic surfaces made from plastic wires. These surfaces are woven to create density between the lines and to be able to produce continuity at the top section of the store’s premises.
Due to the low budget and quick execution time, a low-tech complexity was sought, which is formed by a system composed of perforated aluminum angled elements anchored in the perimeter of the store’s walls. These elements are sewn together with plastic threads, provoking a strange craftsmanship that is born from the combination between digital systems and analogue ones.
