ALFIL (MORTAR AND PESTLE)
The mortar and pestle are objects inspired in the Colombian culture. They can be used to grind or crush spices, seeds or substances to be consumed. The product is designed to be durable due to its special resin and nonporous composition. This kitchen utensil has a nonstick surface and it also repels water.
The Colombian culture is a mixture of five regions, with more than ten different cultures. This object gathers features of our pre-Columbian culture, which with a Western influence, proposes a piece of modern design. Alfil is not only a kitchen implement but also a piece of Colombian design that evokes with its form and concept our country.
After cleaning the cabin of the electrostatic powder coating machine, these pieces came off and showed an industrial fossil with more than 25 years of color layers.
This material will be used to develop unique pieces and generate a discourse around those industrial fossils and how the designers find admiration on these artificial pieces, but with a very natural tectonics.

The project is in development, the material is very limited and does not have a large surface.
