The Mugroso Series started in 2006, where the first sofa was developed during my studies at the Royal College of Art. The project was based on a photographic research where I explored the hectic historical centre of Mexico City, portraying scenarios of improvisation and low resources where people find the way of putting bits and pieces together in order to compose functional everyday objects. The objects grow in what appear random and sometimes absurd compositions, following no planning or safety concerns. The results are beautiful collages of bright plastic colors and filthy bits of different materials, each one connected differently.
The sofas explore the aesthetics and logic of this “system” by using the knot as a the connecting element between a series of cushions and a basic structure.
