The ‘LOMA modu’ (‘modu HILL’) is a modular set of wall shelves that can easily be combined to create variable, curved slopes at desired lengths. As the name suggests, the main inspiration was taken from the mountainous landscape surrounding Malinalco; the magical town we, designers, called home for two weeks. During this time, we teamed up with local artisans in creating unique and functional pieces of art. Our ‘LOMA modu’ team included Angel, Daniel, and me. While we all worked together on the design and the production of the set, it was everyone’s unique skill-sets that made for a truly successful and fun collaboration. After the design was more or less finalized, Angel and his crew cut the parts for the shelves and support blocks out of local red cedar. The shelf frames were then woven together with palm leaves. Two weaves were used to show different options. While Angel and I helped with the carving, Daniel was our trained and highly skilled woodcarver on site. His lizard-like carvings draw directly on an ancient Mayan frog symbol found in Mexico.
