Infante 1415 #1: Monstruitos

Infrastructure - In collaboration with TOMA

Jul - Sep 2015

In 2014, the local government of Providencia, Santiago de Chile, acquired a plot of land which included two buildings formerly part of a textile factory of historical value. After years of underuse, the facilities would be rehabilitated to preserve their original productive purpose, but this time open as a creative hub open to the local community and devoted to social and cultural activities. Within this framework, TOMA was commissioned to develop the interior refurbishment of Infante 1415.

The MONSTRUITOS DE LA HILANDERIA furniture series developed for this project explores two basic principles: the reclamation of materials found at the factory, and the application of simple construction techniques that allowed for the characterization of each unit. A series of objects were created: each piece formed as a unique individual, an inhabitant of the space.
