Castillos: A new Project by Cooperativa Panorámica

After an in depth analysis and experimentation with the pyrotechnical tradition of Tultitlán, Cooperativa Panorámica creates a new collection that reinterprets the character of the Mexican fiesta. Taking the ephemeral manufacture of  “toritos” and  “castillos” as the starting point, they use design as a means of exploration to emphasize the broadest aspects of this practice.

The exercise resulted in a series of sculptural pieces inspired by the construction of these structures, exploring the negative space and incorporating the metal, instead of bamboo and hemp, the original materials.

 

Castillos was shown at an exclusive presentation by Mexican gallery Ángulo0 during ZonaMaco 2018, the leading contemporary art and design fair in Latin America, the most relevant platform for designers and artists of the scene at an international level.
