In 2014, Esrawe Studio featured HOST at Zona Maco, Latin America’s most important contemporary art fair that for the fourth consecutive year devoted a whole section to design pieces.
The collection of limited-edition pieces was based on the act of inhabiting, and included three pieces: Dermal, Balanza and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).
Dermal – is based on the technique of the same name, in which a subcutaneous implant is inserted as a decorative element. The implant modifies and alters the body’s expression, turning it into an inhabitant of itself.
The series was comprised of 100 pieces (20 pieces for each of the five colors) made of blown glass and wooden inserts.
