Novecento marble table lamps

Novecento is a collection of LED table lamps inspired by art deco. They are proposed by the designer Davide G Aquini in two versions, one in black marquinia, the other in breccia. The thick marble discs rest on triangular, almost symbolic, metal structures with brass or green-water finish. Even when the light is off, Novecento enhances the marble as a piece of furniture, with its unique veins and unrepeatable speckles that show on the shiny surface.

ONE SHOT. ONE LIFE

En las artes marciales tradicionales, la maestría del arte no se adquiere únicamente por medio de la destreza. Al recorrer ‘la vía’ uno debe ver mirar más allá de la técnica para convertirse en un verdadero maestro. En la arquería Japonesa o Kyudo, acertar en el blanco no es suficiente. Para poder disparar correctamente debemos “Disparar desde el corazón”. Como indica el Sensei Takeuchi, “Como un seleccionado nacional tenía que practicar para acertar en el blanco cueste lo que cueste. Eventualmente toda esa técnica quedó obsoleta a cambio de la habilidad de expresarme a mí mismo por medio del arco.”

Tentador…

Listen to your hands

Listen to your hands is about how we can make a relationship with inanimate things in our domestic space, like furniture. How we connect to the furniture around us, how we experience and communicate with it.

It looks at the most sensitive of human senses,touch; it communicates a whole world of information to us and it explores how we can create a relationship to an object, a sort of dialogue, through touch.

It is a desk with drawers. A push of one drawer pulls out another as if in direct conversation with the action. A gentle closing of a drawer keeps the others intact thus communicating to us that we need to act with intention, we need to listen with our hands.

TRAMUNTANA

TRAMUNTANA is a film created exclusively for BULLETT’s Surreal Issue. César Pesquera partnered with Art Director Christian Lopez to elucidate the link between the famed Tramuntana wind, known for dramatically shifting in velocity and direction without warning, and a slew of mental disorders afflicting the land it blows through.

The film transports us to Cadaqués, a Catalonian fishing village in the north of Spain, to discuss the wind with its inhabitants and explore the land’s complex geology. The film features a blend of ethereal expositional footage and surrealist imagery, the result of which is part documentary, part surrealist manifesto.

Superman

He is a friend, and he is an unassuming hero. I also think the fact that he is both awkward and a shy newspaper reporter makes him like everybody else. And yet he has another identity, this larger-than-life superhero. Sometimes we feel like Clark Kent, and sometimes, if we are lucky, we feel like Superman.
