Bark hanger is a wall hanger divided into 5 heights generated by folded copper sheets in combination with wood. An elegant and delicate gesture is presented in the subtle fold of the sheets that in turn creates a pleasant contrast of tone and materiality. The final result of this combination conveys elegance and purity of the material, contributing to the costumer the feeling of Nature taken to the elegance of the home.

Inspired by the bark protruding from the trees that reveal its innermost layers, this piece exemplifies the concept within the framework of the living or working space.

La sutil distancia que queda entre Bark Hanger y la pared genera una sensación de vuelo y le da a la pieza un valor de ligereza. La corta distancia es suficiente para generar una línea de contorno de sombra que agrega volumen y aumenta el valor estético del diseño.

PROJECTS

The subtle distance left between the Bark hanger and the wall generates a feeling of flight and gives the piece a value of lightness. The short distance is enough to generate a shadow contour line that adds volume and increases the aesthetic value of the design.

The piece can be understood and treated as a module to combine and unite with others to form a continuous stage with relief and rhythm on the wall. This also increases the number of pieces to hang in it. This modular combination structure is designed for contract offices and hotel halls.

Total Wood

The design of Bark Hanger allows customization; to be able to choose the two materials by which it is formed. A selection of 3 pieces designed for three different scenarios would be presented to the market.

15 PROJECTS

On the back, the Bark Hanger has two steel profiles glued together that serve as a union of all parts and in turn allow the product to hang on the wall, along with another external profile screwed to the wall. En la parte posterior, Bark Hanger tiene dos perfiles de acero pegados que sirven como uniรณn de todas las piezas y, a su vez, permiten que el producto cuelgue de la pared, junto con otro perfil externo que se atornilla a la pared.

Having visited the Gomis house and subsequently analyzed its elements, shapes, tonalities and materials, it was possible to arrive at the creation of this luminaire. Volta is a lamp that offers an ambient light, warm and dim for outdoor, characterized mainly by its relationship with the natural, both in form and material. The lamp is a diffuse light of low height, from which it was decided to create a family collection, thus enabling its use also indoors.

Volta

A furniture design project for Casa Gomis, la Ricarda. Project in collaboration with Maria Casadellà, Qiongxin Fan and Amalia Puga.

Habiendo visitado la casa Gomis y analizado posteriormente sus elementos, formas, tonalidades y materiales, se pudo llegar a la creación de esta luminaria. Volta es una lámpara de luz ambiental ,cálida y tenue de exterior, caracterizada principalmente por su relación con lo natural, tanto en la forma como en el material. La lámpara es una luz difusa de baja altura, a partir de la cual se decidió crear una familia, posibilitando así su uso también en interiores.

Inspired by the classic Catalan volta, typical of the Catalan Mediterranean roofs, Volta comes alive as a praise to this arch, also from the Gomis house; the space for which this piece is designed.

Final prototype

In the group meetings, the different shapes and positions in which the lamp could be placed were studied. It was decided that it would always be the same lamp that changed positions. For this purpose, appliques for the different surfaces were necessary. Once the positions were analyzed, it was decided to design two wall lights: one for wall and another for walls or other similar surfaces.

En las reuniones de grupo se estudiaron las distintas fromas y posiciones en las que se podía colocar la lámpara. Se decidió que siempre sería la misma lámpara la que cambiara de posiciones, es decir, que no se cambiaría la forma de ésta, y para ello eran necesarios apliques para las distintas superficies. Una vez analizadas las posiciones se decidió diseñar dos apliques: uno para pared y otro para muros, paredes u otras superfícies similares.


22 LAURA GUSART VOLTA LAMP

The final piece is a versatile lamp design, honest and adaptable to the environment that allows its use both outdoors and indoors thanks to its materiality and horizontal and vertical position play.

La pieza final es un diseño de lámpara versátil, honesta y adaptable al entorno que permite su uso tanto en exteriores como en interiores gracias a su materialidad y juego de posiciones horizontal y vertical.

Volta is a lighting project designed for Casa Gomis, a reference in architecture. For this reason, this piece responds very well to all the characteristics and requirements of this space.

Volta es un proyecto de luminaria diseñado para la Casa Gomis, referente en arquitectura. Por este motivo, esta pieza responde muy bien a todas las características y requisitos de este espacio.

The general structure of the lamp is made of terracotta colored stoneware, a broken white, like the Catalan volta ceiling of Casa Gomis. Volta is ignited by touch, through a sensor positioned at the beginning of the curve.

La estructura general de la lámpara está realizada de gres color terracota, un blanco roto, al igual que el techo de volta catalana de la Casa Gomis. Volta se enciende por el tacto, a través de un sensor posicionado al inicio de la curva.

The sheet that emits light is constituted by a polymeric (thermoplastic) panel of LEC CeeLite. They are thin translucent light sources of one millimeter thick, flexible and light that can be used on flat or curved surfaces to illuminate. Finally the lamp has a battery from which the light panel is fed. They stand out for their lightness, their high energy capacity and resistance to discharge.

Para los apliques se utiliza chapa de aluminio de 1 mm de grosor, un material ideal para resistir la intemperie. La lámina que emite luz está constituida por un panel polimérico (termoplástico) de LEC CeeLite. Son fuentes de luz translucidas delgadas de un milímetro de grosor, flexibles y ligeras que pueden ser utilizadas en superficies planas o curvas para iluminar. Finalmente la lámpara cuenta con una batería a partir de la cual se alimenta el panel de luz. Destacan por su ligereza, su elevada capacidad energética y resistencia a la descarga.
