marta ayala herrera + cito ballesta's entreplanta lamps intersect with spatial geometries

 

la casa encendida is a social and cultural centre within a high-end neighborhood of madrid, dotted with striking LED lighting features by spanish designer marta ayala herrera and architect cito ballesta. being an open and dynamic hub, it has been rejuvenated with the intention of offering contemporary artistic expressions in terms of education, reflections and debates. in that sense, the collection completes the spirit of this venue which includes the designer’s entreplanta furniture.

marta ayala herrera and cito ballesta’s lighting series reflects on the codification and exploration of space through geometric elements. she presents three different models which, when combined, create different symbologies that illuminate the interiors. yet one characteristic feature of the designs is the positioning of each lamp in such a way that they recreate the X, Y and Z axes. in the end, we can consider them as rhythms that dynamize la casa encendida with its various volumes, thus enhancing the spatial sensation of the viewer. in the same vein, the lamps are designed to recover a low-end industrial material by giving it a new sense of presence; each piece is made of folded and lacquered micro-perforated sheets and embeds linear LED tubes.
