Vilu Light Collection is part of the project The Space of our Objects: Why do objects? How are they involved in space? What do objects give us? Creating objects help us to create a minimum architecture. They participate in space, define it functionally and intensify situations. They allow us to transmit an idea, learn ways to make and test processes.
For us, in life we have no standard situations, so standards must be symbolic and non-standards additionally must be contextual. Vilu Lights has symbolic bounding edges based on origin curves. In this case inspired on the origin myth of the archipelago of Chiloe .
In southern Chile you may find several myths that explain the origin of all around…only one is related to its dismembered geography. It came after the great battle between two strong and powerful forces: Cai-cai Vilu, the spirit of the waters and Tren-tren Vilu, the protective and wise spirit. While one raised the level of the water, the other raised the level of the land. They fought till finding the balance that shaped the archipelago.
Vilu Lights suggest an action. The lighted space proposes a conversation between people and only those who participate in this action are embedded in the inner spatiality. Vilu Collection are light spaces that match traditional symbology and Digital Handcrafting. This is a collection of parameterized local myths to be brought to the world.
The space of our Objects will be Featured at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Milano Design Week, also will be featured at Ventura Lambrate Light Space.
We are a studio involved in architecture, art and design projects. We are in a continuous process of research and experimentation in digital crafting, promoting new encounters between the technologies for projecting and the richness of the local expressed in traditional materials and techniques.
We have developed a work methodology that has two dimensions. First, we seek to systematize knowledge and observation, whether of natural, artificial, geometric or spatial, phenomena, through generative algorithms. Here parametric design is a tool to guide the planning of projects that we carry out, enabling the integration of its stages of design, development and production.
On the other hand, we have discovered an artistic dimension that connects us with our cultural heritage, through the incorporation of traditional experience and knowledge that feed and qualify the generative algorithms or DNA that we create. Exposing the unexpectedness of manual processes and local materials is a way to value what we are in what we do.
We are located in Santiago, Chile.
