Inspired by the mythological totems, this collection is formed by five pieces that can be combined to work as one set of full "aperitivo". Designed in London, the designer imports the Spanish ritual of having an aperitif drink with snacks before a lunch with friends.
The set is made with Endeka clay, an eco-friendly material that helps to reduce the levels of CO2 emissions in the industry of ceramics.
The collection LUX is Elena Gomez de Valcarcel's own interpretation of outdoor and indoor lighting. It reflects the contrast between the different lights and colours of landscapes as a memory of her time traveling Spain by train.
Each item that forms the collection is designed to work individually as well as making a group. They are also thought to work as lamps or just decoration for interior design.
Elena Gómez de Valcárcel brings back the idea of the ceramic flatbacks, the popular XIX century objects that represent an scene on the front, while having the back flat to be hanged on the wall. The flatback is used to capture the representation of the designer's own identity with a human heart.
