AES COLLECTION

A SPIRITUAL UNION OF NATURAL FIBERS AND INDUSTRIAL METAL ACCENTS

 

This Collection uses ethically sourced alcapa, plantain fiber and solid bronze through bold lean lines, to explore a dialogue between geometry and industrialism, presenting balance, harmony and purity. While the pieces are visionary in concept, they are functional in application. This artistic approach to design is an integral element of VERDI’s practice.

HORSE HAIR

Origen Colombia

Our horsehair fiber is a protein fiber naturally sourced from Colombian horses. Variety of colors come from natural horsehair colors, meaning fibers do not go through a dyeing process, making color completely fade-resistant. Since colors depend upon the horse’s natural hair coloring, there can exist a slight variation in colors shown below. This natural fiber is strong enough to withstand the traffic of everyday life.

WORDS OF THE ARTIST

TOMÁS VERA

 

If there’s something that has been well discussed over the past year is how, challenging times, also bring evolution. And how, in times of crisis, creativity flourishes.

In my case, the personal and professional difficulties that prevailed during the first months of the pandemic, forced me to question myself and actively seek for new creative angles out of a genuine desire for change. I wanted to continue being faithful to VERDI’s iconic reinterpretation of contemporary and traditional, and to our inherent mix of fibers and metals, but through a new concept that would ideally feel more in tune with the stillness, the self- confrontation, the new meanings of connection, and this need for reinvention that these times have brought. AES was born, and with it, a new way of understanding VERDI’s materiality. This time, our different materials do not intertwine with each other, but instead overlap and generate more linear and contemporary dynamics, aimed to translate balance, harmony, and purity. Much needed values in today’s context

HIGHLY CUSTOMIZABLE

The AES collection is highly customizable. Collectors can dictate the placement of the metal accents and organize their layout on the rug according to their unique space. This interaction and ability to play with geometry allow for a thoughtful and reflective relationship between the user and the object.
