Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Tori is a stool of variable dimensions inspired by the Japanese arch that marks the boundary between profane and sacred space.

This edition is, on the one hand, our first experience in cast aluminum and on the other hand –we hope– the beginning of an extensive material exploration on this design.

This piece was cast using the lost mold method with low density expanded polystyrene. The front profile of the piece is drawn and carved on various EPS plates, which are then stacked and glued together, resulting in the mold of the piece in real scale (1: 1). Lastly, the mold is buried in a compressed mixture of sand, earth and coal, and the molten aluminum is cast at a temperature of 700 C. This action causes the expanded polystyrene to be dissolved by the molten aluminum and occupy the volume where it was buried. Once the aluminum has solidified, the final piece is unearthed, revealing on its surface the texture of the lost mold.

Material: sand cast aluminium

Artist Profile

Born: 2016

Hometown: Buenos Aires

Based in: Buenos Aires

Ries is a Buenos Aires based studio devoted to designing and producing furniture, objects, and spaces.

The studio’s approach to design is influenced by the mixed background in architecture and industrial design of its members, who, through a shared vision, achieve to combine different materials with production processes rooted in craft and industry to create pieces that seek to elevate the experience of the everyday life.

Drifting between aesthetic simplicity and resolutive complexity, their work covers diverse fields that range from the design of small objects to interior design projects, as well as from the creation of unique pieces to serial production.

The vast majority of the studio’s production is held at Cha co, the workshop that functions as a laboratory and experimentation space for the development of the ideas conceived at the design office.

In 2018, together with Juan García Mosqueda, they founded Quick Tiny Shows, an experimental platform to promote the exhibition of new ideas regarding art, design and architecture.

The studio was founded in 2016 and is directed by Marcos Altgelt and Tasio Picollo.
