Being a person influenced by furniture design, I decided to create a series of screen prints inspired in kidney shapes that reference this typology from the 60’s that inspired me. I made a composition of oval shapes combining the green and yellow colors.
Once this screen prints were realized, I proposed my sister Elena Ramírez to collaborate in our first project together, this collaboration would consist on taking my design onto a tangible material, wood, precisely ash.
We decided to translate this designs to a furniture piece, four tables with the same shape of kidneys, stained on the same colors in green and yellow.
It was curious to think that the idea that inspired me in the beginning to design my screen-prints (the kidney shaped table typology from the 60s) finally turned to be built this way for this project.
