inspired by the surprising number of meteorites that land on the earth’s surface, ENORME studio has created the ‘astral bodies’ project in collaboration with VITAMIN-ARTE and using FINSA wood’s new fibracolour MDF. to demonstrate the possibilities of the new material, the colored boards of timber have been layered together to form objects that represent the locations in which ‘otherworldly’ objects have fallen.

auria, baroña, cervo, ézaro, allariz, herbón, elviña, sálvora and trevinca make up the collection of ‘astral bodies’ created by ENORME. the names relate to the specific location within the galician geography of spain in which a meteorite has landed – as it is tradition for them to be baptized with the name of where they were found. by utilizing bold colors, textures and finishes, these 9 timber objects have been created to embody the identity of the place where they were found.

auria is the name of a meteorite that has fallen in the city of ourense, hence its composition of yellow and black fibracolour, reminiscent of the ancient roman excavations of the city. on the shore of the atlantic ocean is the castro of baroña, one of the oldest celtic settlements in galicia. another of the meteorites takes the name of this millennial site and is inspired by its different heights and infinite views.ENORME studio layers colored wood to represent 'astral bodies' that have landed on earth designboom

 

 

also on the coast is cervo, a small town full of color and vitality gives its name to a meteorite composed of red, gray, anthracite gray and black fibracolour. the gray fibracolour, together with the terracotta nova melamine design, are the protagonists of ézaro, one of the meteorites with the most personality. its colors transport the visitor to the area of cliffs and waterfalls more known in the region. similarly, in the province of coruña, we find the district of elviña, a population that maintains a great relationship with the academic world is composed of many layers of gray fibracolour, which give a monolith perspective to a piece full of forms and subtleties.

in allariz the vivid and attractive colors of the multitude of gardens that flood the city are the inspiration to recreate this gray fibracolour meteorite and the lila hawaii melamine design. likewise, the talcum green and the black fibracolour make up herbón. the meteorite takes its name from this municipality of padrón, where the production of peppers is its differentiating element. another new meteorite, named as sálvora island, famous for its beaches, cliffs and wildlife, is composed of black fibracolour and veneers in a natural way such as palisandro mumbai, kandy ebony and lebanon cedar.

 

 

finally, we find trevinca, the highest meteorite in the astral bodies by FINSA exhibition, which takes its name from the highest mountain in galicia. composed of black fibracolour, this piece is one of the focuses of attention of this astral world that is created together with ENORME studio and VITAMIN-ARTE.
