Installation and manufacturing system
Project: Jimena Acosta, Andrés Altesor, Emiliano Godoy, Antonio Gurrola, Rodolfo Samperio.
Location: Modern Art Museum, Mexico City.
Diseño Piloto is the name of the installation by Jimena Acosta, Andrés Altesor, Emiliano Godoy, Antonio Gurrola and Rodolfo Samperio for the exhibition Asteroide B-612, Environmental Balances and Regenerative Design at the Modern Art Museum in Mexico City.
Within this installation, a project with the same name – Piloto- is presented. The project focuses on the design of systems for manufacturing surfaces using offcuts from the furniture industry, which tend to have widely differing formats, sizes and other characteristics.
The strategy is to create small modules from irregular pieces of board, and then to join the modules together in different configurations to create surfaces, furniture, walls or even whole rooms. The wall that is presented in the exhibition shows how uniformity can be achieved on one side, while the reverse side was left as a series of uneven edges that reference the origin of the material.
