Centro Cultural de Chacao, Caracas, 2004
An artistic installation of playful furniture built on the foundation of interactive design. This idea was inspired by mathematical puzzles made of modular pieces that can be assembled to create different configurations, allowing the user to play with them. The achievement and the ultimate goal of this setup is the creative design that maximizes every space, however small, thus creating alternate seating for the amphitheater of the Chacao Cultural Center.
Caracas (2013) & Paris (2014)
Out of frustration from the degrading situation in Venezuela. Carolina transformed the Panton chair (a design icon from the 20th century) into a symbol of the “Catuche” slum (an icon of the Venezuelan social culture) by carving its blueprint on the chair by hand and by using advanced digital tools (BCN fab lab).
Pan-tuche was part of “New Territories”, an exhibition that started at New York’s MAD Museum of Arts & Design, then went to New Mexico and Mexico.
¡ es un cuñete !
Directly translated as “Holy crap it’s a bucket”, is the name of a series of poufs that were designed re-using empty paint buckets. This series was given to an interdisciplinary team of architects, artists, graphic and fashion designers, to intervene. A selection of these “cuñetes” participated at the Latin-American Biennial show BID Madrid (2002).
