Home Adventures by Goula/Figuera

Barcelona-based design studio Goula/Figuera recently launched Home Adventure. The project arises from the need the designers had to make certain somewhat fanciful ideas tangible. Ideas that you would never think would interest companies. Understandably, when they work for others their creativity is always conditioned by market and production needs. Therefore Home Adventures is the luxury that Álvaro Goula and Pablo Figuera allow themselves when they feel the need to create openly and unconditionally.

Through this initiative the two designers make pieces available to the public that as a consequence of their experimental nature, morphologic inspiration or their innovative design, prove difficult to find in conventional home decor catalogues. With the name they have chosen for the brand they hope to portray their inventive side: their designs are bold and experimental. They are designs that immerse in unknown creative territory. They are simply Home Adventures. Lines & Dots is a pendant light fitting in which the light, its basic element, relinquishes all its importance to the material, the metal, in this particular case working as would a sculptor.

Lines & Dots has its origins in dozens of ink drawings. From those abstract silhouettes there emerged a series of eight shapes, given form using folding rods and soldered by hand by local craftsmen. Eight different modules which are combined using the cable as a pivot. Sculptural light fitting that creates a contrast between shadows and light, transparency and opacity, movement and immobility and whose source of light is an adjustable led, which gives off a warm light and incorporates state of the art technology.

The production of Lines & Dotes is performed by local metalworkers who weld the individual pieces  by hand.  This process is closer to that of sculpture than the standard manufacturing of light fittings, as the small irregularities that can present themselves in the product shouldn’t be seen as defects but something that makes each piece unique.
