“gayalux” interior lamp (2003) dimensions: diameter 18 and 26 cm
The concrete Gayalux lamp is both sculptural and luminous. This mineral ball is anchored to the ground and it appears to levitate with a streak of light passing through it. Concrete turns from architecture to objects. The block becomes curved like skin.

The concrete Playtime slab adapts and reinterprets traditional marquetry techniques for the characteristics of this construction material. Playtime varies geometric concrete forms and counter-forms. The pattern present on the first slab disappears little by little on the second and third slab until it practically no longer exists on the fourth.
