O Peso da Pedra

Miguel Vieira Baptista

A set of pieces that have been conceptualized from research into the construction methods used in Roman antiquity, in which the designer studied the ways the various stone elements used in columns were joined together at the time. HIPÓDROMO is made up of seven juxtaposing elements, creating a singular piece, thus contradicting methods that used mortar or extremely resistant metal and stone pieces. In turn, ECLIPSE is composed of a single piece that while seemingly unfinished, continues to function as a container.
