I like to download 3d models of cars and to investigate the textures and materials when rendering. In the bottom image analysis of surfaces in the rendering process.


Fragments of Nature


Continuing the collection of headphones and trilox earphones, a sound equipment has been designed following the same line, this time only in black. The set is built in oak wood satin, abs with glossy finish, and black polished aluminum for the buttons. The equipment consists of two wireless speakers that adapt to the half-circular shape of the central body, and this central part is where all the electronics are incorporated, inside the housing.



For the creation of this project have been taken references of various eras and styles, it could be said that designers like Eero Aarnio, Karim Rashid or Charles and Ray Eames have been transcendental in the development and inspiration, but we must also highlight the nature, the fundamental reference of this project. All the pieces that comprise the collection follow the same line in terms of materials and shapes that give the silhouette of each product, the basis of the inspiration of this project, to put the reader in situation, part of the ramifications and diversifications that they are created in the roots, as well as in the nerves of the leaves and the outlines and contours of the trees (Walnut). The project consists of a collection of furniture for hotels consisting of six pieces, an armchair, a stool, a low table to match the two previous pieces, a magazine rack and two luminaires, one floor and one table. All the pieces follow the same line, and have as a common component between them a walnut base, also the shapes and organic contours compose and describe the same silhouette in all the pieces of the collection. Materials are also common among most pieces, 316 stainless steel, walnut, polypropylene, textile (felt, leather) and synthetic rubber are some of the materials that shape the pieces of the collection.


Research has been focused on several hotels, which are clear references of the target audience of this collection, what is sought in this public are large spaces, pleasant environments with lots of natural light and reflecting a space of peace, tranquility and harmony, all this together with a wide natural or artificial vegetation that conditions the spaces of the hotel such as vertical gardens, a very common resource used in indoor spaces, receptions or leisure rooms, rest rooms, living rooms, terraces (indoor or outdoor spaces). outside) etc .. In the aforementioned there is no reference, but it would be talking about hotels of demographic situation in the epicenter of cities or close to them.

Another diversification of this target public are those hotels that are located in large rural plots, either near the sea or in the mountains, surrounded by nature and where the use of plant species is no longer necessary in the spaces of the complex itself. You will find yourself surrounded by an environment of nature, these hotels will normally be located away from the cities in isolated environments.

Therefore and finally two lines are established in terms of the target audience, on the one hand those city hotels in which the spaces conditioned with vegetation are prioritized and recreating a small natural environment within the mundane hustle and bustle of the city; and on the other hand those hotels / resorts located in remote areas, isolated from cities, in natural environments, places to go to disconnect from the world, routine work and everything in general, in this type of complex would be absurd artificial conditioning of the natural and of the vegetation since they are already surrounded by it.

Finally, talk about my sketches, I like to capture my ideas and design with pencil and pen (Pilot G-TEC-C4, Pentel BK77 SUPERB and the rotring uni pin) in my notebooks moleskine, I always carry one with me everywhere. After having the idea drawn I like to pass it to a computer in Autodesk Sketchbook and then start modeling in one of the computer-aided design programs.
