Home > Winners > #30101


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Only Right Here

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Knife holder

INSPIRATION:
Since the twelfth century the first bullfights were documented as an act or public spectacle. Today consciousness awakening of people is a symptom of an overall global assessment, being partakers of the divine nature, we are a whole. "Only Right Here" (Solo Aqui Tienes Derecho) symbolizes a new era, where there will be an extinction of aggressive activities, being embodied in what once was a cultural feast, and the great evolutionary step on a humanistic level.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The product's concept lies in the fusion of bullfighting and a kitchenware. It's derived of a thorough analysis of Mexican and international cultural mores. The piece works like a knife holder, which has a multifaceted and geometric aesthetic.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It supports standard chef knives, which let you cut any food. The blades rest on a sanitary plastic to provide a hygienic experience.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has been developed in Mexico between 2011-2013

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The concept is a molding injection piece made of plastic ABS PC with white matte finish.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 133 mm x Depth 388 mm x Height 198 mm

TAGS:
bullfighting, knife holder, mexico, spain, kitchenware

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The theme of the research is the Mexican culture; data was collected through interviews and photographs in the city's downtown. In 2011, the most conservative professional surveys like Parametria, marks a 70 percent rejection of bullfighting, the rest is between doubtful and fans. A new era is among us in which violence stay in the past.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was to develop a piece with a multifaceted aesthetic geometric shape formed by 162 polysurfaces. Prototypes were made to select the size and material of the piece; wooden models, 3d prints and handcrafted aluminum casting. Another challenge was to seek an antidote to clarify the relationship between what is stated and the different positions of society.
