Balance Cubano (Human Needs series)

Balance Cubano is a symbolic re-interpretation of the traditional Cuban rocking chair. In this body of work an unexpected and imposed collective nature must sacrifice and deny the grace of the rocking motion. Furniture that could very well comfort a person and interact with the surrounding community becomes a rigid and unpleasant object.

I dedicate these works to Cuba and its present interesting situation, aware of the many new opportunities and yet also faced with challenges. I believe that in the process of redesigning the Cuban society, fate will be decided on issues of universal character such as the individual’s role in building a healthy society and the importance of having a harmonious balance between individual and collective interests.
