Nacho Carbonell is only twenty-eight years old, but thanks to the subsidies granted to him by the Dutch government, he has become one of the most interesting designers of the moment.
Born in Valencia, he works in Eindhoven, where he began working in a former church as long as a football field located just a few minutes from home. He did not pay any rent: he presented his project and got the space to found a ‘factory’ with designer workers who gave birth to strange objects between a toy and a collectible.
After attending the Cardenal Herrera University is in Valencia, he completed design studies in the Netherlands at the Eindhoven Design Academy, gaining immediate success with the appointment of Designer of the Future at the Art Basel Miami Beach.
"I like to see objects as living beings. To think they can come alive and surprise us with their behavior. I want to create tools to escape from everyday life, "he says. And indeed it would be difficult to call his chairs as such because they are in fact real tools to undertake a mental journey, as his Bush of iron
composed by ruffled metal pins, as real bush-shelters, or the series called Diversity
, made of wood and branches.
His work is based on the idea of creating a relationship through the object, a bond with people through the excitement generated by the object itself, “in an era when - he says - unless we are connected we feel lost”.
Carbonell has built his nest, Por la Ramas, winding a cellophane film among the trees. The video of him while fiddling with the branches can be found on YouTube (see link below): "By building our cocoon, we transfer our emotions and our needs to it. Doing it with your own hands makes it more alive."
