It implicated an extensive study of the work of Pablo Picasso, and technology needed to paint in several shapes the glass panels from behind. From there the designer extracted the purest and conceptual forms in order to make a more modern and interactive design.
The biggest challenge in this particular piece was the designing of the wooden joints with glass, and adjustments of the structure to glass, and the process to paint the glass in an industrial and yet unique way to paint all 5 pieces of front in the same alignment and similar look.
Also a specific search of materials was made in order to find the correct ones that would give the desired effect and engage with all the rest of the elements in a practical, yet resistant way, without affecting the originality and luxurious projection.
