We are glad to feature another stunning project by the Buenos Aires based studio Molistudio, still fascinated by their visual storytelling. If you have not, please hop over to the color study which has been very popular on Eclectic Trends. This time we’d love to feature everyday objects translated into a fascinating 3d rubik world.
Can you describe how the idea of rubic. was born?
‘RUBIK’ is the result of a collaboration with Peter Tarka who also works in the same industry. After making a first contact, there was straight away a mutual attraction for the work of M. C. Escher and, with a further emphasis, his interpretation of interiors. Automatically, and taken to the field where both felt home (3D), the idea of deconstructing the usual perspective of a home appeared.
Your use of color is always very strong. Is there a certain intention this time, and if so, would you like to share, which?
Regarding the color palette, we both work on similar keys many times. We like pastel hues, and we simply combine them by affinity or complementarity. The aesthetic references and the look of other interior designers are always a great anchor. Even, there are certain objects that define the palette and the disposition of others, for beauty or singularity. To name a case, the power and personality that transmits with such delicacy the Charlotte Lounge Armchair of India Mahdavi, makes you want to modify your entire environment so the piece itself is a star.
Is there a common leitmotiv thought all your work you are most interested in?
Conceptually speaking, as a study it has always been fun to approach different topics by putting the objects of the everyday in a different place or simply metaphorizing with small problems of a common day, as we did with Endless. If you look closely, in almost all our works there is an intention to take an object of everyday life and take it to another universe, to talk and tell us things.
Perhaps for this reason, we take a house (a nice symbol of everyday life) and try to translate every space into an unfinished face of a Rubik’s cube. It is a joke easy to understand, fun to watch and suggestive from a pictorial point of view.
