BARICHARA VASE

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.

 

Barichara stones are sandstones original form the mines of Santander, Colombia.
Characterized by they hardness and its marbling in red, ocher, yellow and white tones; these stones are usually used for facades, roads, sculptures, and fountains thanks to their resistance to outdoor weather.

This chair shows the contemporary state of furniture which is interested in bringing the material to the maximum through the technology and design processes, with a plus in the textile material by Sprandling, one of these winner of a Red Dot Design Award.

The result is a unique and unrepeatable object that lies somewhere between design and art; where shapes and colors tell the story not only of a material but also of a town and an artisan that with the work of his hands brings out the beauty of the raw material and tradition that has put his region on the map.
