‘candelabro’ is a collaboration between diana vernaza gonzenbach and jorde de la cruz for the ‘let it open’ exhibition on show at salone satellite during milan design week 2012. the presentation is about the changing contemporary designers whose work is produced and shared to acquire knowledge. the project is inspired by ‘open design’ methodology, from enzo mari‘s autoprogettazione in 1977, to current movements like ‘recession design’ and ‘infraestructures’ by thomas lommee. each piece is composed by standard components industrially made. open source objects allow easy construction, replacing or fixing pieces by anyone at anywhere with an affordable price. ‘candelabro’ is made of lacquered ash wooden rods and copper pipes joints. a triangulated stable structure is formed when the pieces are combined allowing the structure to hold up to three candles.
