‘The Bench’ is Part of the ‘Evolution Collection’.
Living in an era were we are saturated of information at a frenetic rhythm, Nacho Carbonell wanted to create a refuge were one can escape and digest this rave in which we are submerged: This provides a moment of peace with yourself, with others or between others.
The material employed is recycled paper coming from excess information produced by our society. The paper has been separated by colors before creating the paste. This allows us to not only recycle the paper but also the ink it possesses.
Once the paste is ready it is applied over an iron frame covered with chicken wire of different textures. Depending on the pattern of this wire a unique paper texture appears.
In this first evolution edition there is three different pieces. The first is “one man chair”, which incites personal thinking.
“The bench” represents the crowds of the daily life and its attached cocoon is a door to escape from it.
The third chair is called “The lovers chair” and it pretends to confront the two sides of behaving: private and public. It explores different ways of communication, it becomes a connecting tunnel.

Nacho Carbonell likes to see objects as living organisms, imagining them coming alive and being able to surprise you with their behaviour. He wants to create objects with his hands, then he can give them his personality. Nacho turns them into communicative objects that can arouse one’s sensations and imagination. What he wants to create are objects with a fictional or fantasy element, that allow you to escape everyday life.
