The lamp Holes, of Arturo Alvarez, creates a dialogue among children and architecture

A group of 20 children between 6 and 9 years of age attended for 4 days an educational workshop at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo (Galician Contemporary Art Centre); a sensory approach to urban and historic architecture in Santiago de Compostela. Led by the architect Ruth Varela they made a trip across the motivational concepts stone, water and light. The result: an endless number of proposals made by the children from two basic elements for their constructions, triangles of cloth and sticks. From the idea by John Berger "The first inhabitant of space had to be light". The lamp Holes, manufactured by arturo alvarez and designed by Bertjan Pot, which recreates a kite built from triangles, with holes through which the light escapes gave inspiration for the proposals of these young designers, who could learn the differences between "technique" light and "symbolic and emotional" light, including light of the moon and the sun, between solid light and diffuse light... Arturo Alvarez will be exhibiting at Stockholm Furniture Fair & Light Fair, from 7th-11th February in a space located at Stand A09:50. Arturo Alvarez website Arturo Alvarez sheet at Infurma
