New Approach: Redefining spaces
New Approach · Debut was presented at first edition of Product Design Madrid, an international platform for product design celebrated at COAM (Architects Association of Madrid). Jorge Penadés was commissioned by Co-Director Jose David Pérez to present New Approach, his first self-initiated project.
Usually spaces are delimited just by one principle: physical elements, visual references or different aspects that have to do with our perception. But, can one single element hold several ways to define a space?
Using a relatively simple geometric system and embracing dichotomies as full/empty, light/shadow and symmetry/perspective, Penadés offers different possibilities to carrying it out, depending on the context and the position in which will be used.
New Approach Debut is the first step of an on-going project that tends to push the boundaries between space and the user's interaction with it. The project implies a continuous defiance of preconceived ideas in this scope, leading to a deeper involvement of both maker and user. This piece suggests a constant revision of space as the ultimate way to connect with the spectator, turning him into an active user.
