héctor esrawe introduces félix candela's parabolas into lighting design

héctor esrawe has designed lighting fixtures that create a reflection based on how the light travels through a solid surface — from the beginning to the end, through the darkness in the parabolas of félix candela. the path of the light in each of the versions is conditioned by the metal, in its scale, its surface and in its expression, also on its repetition, which builds an architectonic quality for each one of them.

the poetry of the shadows is the absence of light which is as relevant as its presence. the starting points where the brass layer touches base, establish the origin for every light element, meaning, the number of brass layers indicates the number of light elements in each piece. parábola is represented by masa galería, which opened its first exhibition ‘collective/collectible’ on the 7th of february 2019 in mexico city.
