Eros Console

The organic and curved lines of this piece emulate a warm and daring sensation that balances half way between the futurist and the wilderness. The organic lines are only obtained with the involvement of an expert artisan. The wood is Tzalam, a very hard tropical wood from Central America. The top is made with laminated colored glass (18mm). This consoles forms part of the “Eros" collection, which uses the human body and the organic forms as inspiration, transforming them into a collection of furniture thoughtfully designed to evoke erotic feelings, harmony and beauty.

Gerardo Ríos's artistry and craftsmanship is a symbiotic reflection of what he believes in and often finds inspiration on “the daring romance and adventures that we find in people, history and our natural environment”. Ríos’ artistic spirit is inherited from a lineage of artists dating back to his great-great grandfather, the world-renowned painter José MarÍa Velasco. Each piece of furniture, whether it is a chair, a divan, or a chaise lounge, should create a sense of harmony and provoke a sensual response with the person who experiences it. For Gerardo Ríos, It is the need to communicate and the possibility of astonishment that defines the word “Design”.

G. Rios Furniture

Born in México, Gerardo Ríos has the training of an industrial designer and the calling of an artist: Curious and inquisitive by nature, in his furniture he mixes a seemingly boundless array of stimuli that only truly materialize after an intense process of studies and refinement. As a multifaceted artist, he has a highly sophisticated vision in regards to what makes a piece of furniture special. His designs are made with pure, organic shapes, sometimes elemental but always evoking lavish experiences and associations.
