Christian Vivanco, in collaboration with the Casa Gutierrez Najera gallery in Queretaro, Mexico, created the lighting project, Las Gordas. Las Gordas is a series of lamps in varied sizes made from a commonly used plastic colander. The colander is used as the base of the lamp in combination with a translucent shade. The idea behind the project was to take an object and to reinterpret it into a different context, thereby making it a new object. In other words, the series of lamps reinforces the idea that we should rethink what is already available, instead of creating entirely new objects in a world completely oversaturated.
