The pieces of Madrid-based architect Ángel Mombiedro’s COLLECTION 1 – his first furniture collection – are best viewed as elements of a whole. It’s a system that functions by observing each piece in relation to the others. The fundamental forms, flat colors, geometry, symmetry, straight lines, and curved planes of the collection are based on searching out harmony.
The tables, chairs, and lamps rely on a balance created from Mombiedro’s use of iron, velvet, and marble, or by incorporating the trades of metal, stone, and textiles and how he works with all three together. Each piece is made to order in small workshops in Madrid, drawing attention to the personalization and thought of each object. By incorporating his own talents, as well as the advice of experts, COLLECTION 1 finds its place in the contemporary furniture world.
