Rafael Aranda

Rafael Aranda translates the material aspect of glass. One of the founders of RCR Arquitectes traces its flow and its nature until he finds its very composition.

The collaborative prelude opens with one of the masterminds of the firm that was created in 1988. The joint work between Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta was worthy of the Pritzker Architecture Prize of 2017 due to the intimate connection between space and time that is reveals.

Its harmonic narrative highlights internal and external spaces that converge in emotional and experiential architecture. "They are believers in the function, the form and the sensations that the materials transmit; their work reflects directed study by a team that defends beauty as a way of life, demanding maximum yield and functionality from their designs".



During the art and design fair Zona Maco, high-end glass Mexican manufacturer Nouvel Limited showcases a collaboration with designers Héctor Esrawe, Emiliano Godoy y Brian Thoreen.

This is the first occasion when the three designers co-create a collection of objects. Throughout several months the designers worked hand in hand with the design team and the artisans at Nouvel Limited to generate risky, large-scale pieces which take glass design to new heights.


Four different families were designed. The one with the largest presence at Zona Maco is comprised of glass pieces formed around steel or brass plates. These two materials are holding each other in a delicate balance, and the contrast is quite severe as the glass is transparent while the plates are rougher and less refined.


Another family is made of pieces of glass which were also formed around metal plates, but are shown alone, with the imprints of the plates giving them shape and character.


Another material that was brought into the mix is stone. A set of rational, rectilinear volumes are formed by glass and stone. The connection of the two materials is slanted and it holds in place because the glass copied the texture on the stone. The glass, always on top of the stone, has an open ending and may be used as vases or containers.


A rough, chiseled stone pyramid and a glass cylinder are held in place due to the texture on the rock being copied by the glass. Two pieces are identical, just one placed upside down. This way, one works as a side table while the other one is a container or vase.
