Bunch Chandelier V Branch (207/2021)
Nacho Carbonell’s series of chandeliers manifest as nebulous canopies of light and colour.
Created entirely by hand, the metal, branch-like frame is welded into form inch by inch, and each mesh shade can take months to shape and texture. Due to the tactile process of creation, Carbonell views the sculpture as an extension of himself as an artist, imbued with his soul.
Modelled on plants, roots, branches and other organic structures, Carbonell’s practice focuses on connection and vitality, creating artworks that form a deep relationship between object and viewer.
In 2010, a year after being named a Designer of the Future at Design Miami/Basel, he presented This Identity, redefining his current style of organic forms and rough and colorful textures. His pieces are part of private collections and museums around the world.
