Title: Voronoi Collection
Artist: Carlos del Castillo
The Voronoi diagrams have been used in engineering and natural sciences since the 19th century. Carlos del Castillo achieved to bring the continuity of their surfaces and the beauty of their shapes to a family of lamps thanks to our 3D sand printing technology.
Carlos tried to combine on the same product characteristics that often are placed separately, trying avoiding the contrast that they inherently have.
Concepts like texture, emotion, roughness, organic, rustic, traditional, etc. that are unconsciously attached to sand meet in this project the complexity, geometry, science, innovation, future, trend etc. of the Voronoi pattern.
Sand meets technology in order to make from this luminaires a modern, simple and elegant element for most living spaces.
The main goal of this project with Sandhelden was to create a product able to teach and show what this technology is capable of doing in terms of complexity and at the same time study the limitations of technology for further upcoming projects.
His goal was to initiate the company in the lighting scene and design the whole production chain of the first series of lamps for Sandhelden. From the first sketch until the last assembly step.
Carlos studied Bachelor of Industrial Design Engineering and Product Development in Madrid (Spain) where he is originally from. The passion and commitment to his work and the continuous pursuit of the connections between design and science are the characteristics that define his work.
As the head of product design of Sandhelden, he designed for the company the Voronoi collection. A series of luminaries based on the famous mathematics tessellations, bringing for the first time the worldwide used pattern to the 3D sand printing technology.
