Custom made furniture, reception desks, shelving and storage, wall units, tables, and more. Gentle curves, natural formations, and angular shapes have inspired me to create myriad solutions based on different parameters.
Named after my firstborn child, Aurea, it was my first attempt to create digitally fabricated three-dimensional surfaces with planar elements. 2012
What can be more explicit than a coffee table inspired by the coffee bean’s unique shape and colors? This became an instant classic. 2013
Another classic, signature design. This one incorporates a glass top that adds further depth to its ribbed interior.
A stunningly beautiful sofa, it’s done with alternate maple and cedar plywood sections.
Although it is a “hard surface”, It’s extremely comfortable thanks to its subtle ergonomic curves.
This table turned into bench was designed by my former partner Oscar Ramos.
It is the most cinematic of the series, where each section leads to a subtle perception of an otherwise complex plane inside the bench.
This bigger-brother of the iconic Dendronde Table, emerged as a private commission for the CEO on Foundation for Puerto RIco, a prominent NGO working with Puerto Rican Communities.
Stainless Steel and glass
A steel and glass reception desk, Ignea surfaces up as a kind of a rock, with its angular faces showing different shades of the same color.
Stunning. Beautiful. Craft. This dining table draws its shape from the breadfruit’s skin and its complex geometrical arrangement. Voronoi diagrams can describe geometrically this complex pattern which was then turned into a three-dimensional shape.
This extended version of the original Anémona stands as the centerpiece of the hotel lounge.
Anemones have limited movement, so they’ve had become so rare and unique in order to attract its prey into their bottom and maintain their species. Sand, breeze, and water are elements making a presence in this room through the color palette, the organic shapes and elements, and the lighting ambience.
This series of wall units for storage and shelving were inspired by Puerto Rico’s south-western dry scenery. Constantly pounded by the Caribbean Sea’s fierce elements, the resulting landscape seems to be sculpted into sharp edges and complex folding planes.
A Zig-Zag composition in X and Y axes results in this beautifully crafted bookcase. Its peaks and valleys reveal while you walk through the space.
One of Puerto Rico’s top financial institutions selected Constructo to design and build their new conference table. A round table typology emerged and its dimensions were so big, that it made us think of different ways to subdivide it into smaller pieces. A pentagonal aluminum structure is cladded with Mahogany wood, a solid surface ring and a glass in the center.
One of Puerto Rico’s top financial institutions selected Constructo to design and build their new conference table. A round table typology emerged and its dimensions were so big, that it made us think of different ways to subdivide it into smaller pieces. Two additional tables were commissioned to suit more people depending on the meeting to be held.
Detail showing the two principal materials: wood and aluminum. the structure (powder-coated grey) is cladded with solid wood panels, and the folded white aluminum sheets articulate the space between the legs.
The table design was so contrasting with the existing interior architecture, that the board decided to re-design the whole room, taking the main table as the centerpiece for the layout. New fascias, walls, and textures were selected to complement the beauty of the tables.
