jorge garaje redesigns the old-fashioned aesthetic of wired glass in buenaventura table series


industrial designer jorge garaje’s latest buenaventura table collection is a series of lightweight and outdoor-proof furniture. the overall aim of the project, according to garaje, was to restore the old-fashioned aesthetic of wired glass by substituting it with laminated glass. garaje’s buenaventura table collection is heavily influenced by the combination of wired glass and aluminum that is prevalent in spanish culture.

jorge garaje‘s design uses anodized aluminum profiles joint using rivets and an aluminum carpentry structure topped with a reinforced glass cover. ‘the name, buenaventura, means good luck in spanish.’ explains garaje, ‘my aims is to recover a new status and application to this material, and in the near future, to avoid the cessation of its production.’ the product is available in three finishes: clear, smokey and amber.
