Creative Studio Antoñito y Manolín Launches SPINA CREDENZA
The Spanish creative studio Antoñito y Manolín mixes different techniques and mediums to develop a strong yet lightweight design and launch SPINA CREDENZA. Dyed paper pulp cladding has been crafted following ancient methods to get the right look and touch. Applied by hand, covering every nook and corner on a painstaking process, the subsequent pulp layers beam their raw texture as glue and cellulose dry.
Limited to 20 numbered pieces, SPINA is a visual challenge between plain volumes and cylindrical connectors, feet and extrusions. Three massive and tough appearance cubist modules seem to float over near one hundred columnar legs. The core structures are made of different materials fully covered with paper pulp from recycled sources. The result is a resounding 2.5 meters piece of furniture crowned by 304 nipples that give its unique shape and volume.
The look of the three bodies’ structure and nippled surface ressembles the old Spanish cabinets covered with iron nails from Early Gothic Period.
A brutalist structure formed by three interconnected modules, resting on 95 legs. This piece of furniture is fully hand coated with pigmented paper pulp, following a purely artisanal process that infuses its rough and organic texture.
