With the aim of preserving cultural heritage, Ígnea brings traditional Mallorcan craftsmanship into a contemporary context. Focusing on textile design, it offers a new way of interpreting the traditional fire flame shape using a gradient of color.

[EN]

The symbol of fire has always been the protagonist element of Mallorcan celebrations. For both the pagan and Christian population, fire is part of their rituals and traditions, as well as being considered as a fertilizer for the soil.


The hanging rocker was born as a result of the textile study, made of walnut wood. This product is able to use the exact measure of the textile and use it in its own favor to obtain maximum efficiency. The Majorcan tongues leave the factory with a total width of 70cm and the rocking chair offers that exact measure. The design is thought so that the fabric goes from one point to another without the need of seams or cuts, making its process/execution more sustainable. A single piece of fabric makes up the seat, the cushion and the spaces needed to attach it to the walnut wood structure.

Con el objetivo de preservar el patrimonio cultural, Ígnea traslada la artesanía tradicional mallorquina al contexto contemporáneo. Centrándose en el diseño textil, ofrece una nueva manera de interpretar la tradicional forma de llama de fuego utilizando un gradiente de color.

[EN]

El símbolo del fuego ha sido siempre el elemento protagonista de las celebraciones mallorquinas. Tanto para la población pagana como para la cristiana, el fuego forma parte de sus rituales y tradiciones; además de considerarse como fertilizante para la tierra.


Como consecuencia del estudio textil, nace el balancín colgante hecho en madera de nogal. Este producto es capaz de utilizar la medida exacta del textil y usarla a su favor para obtener el máximo de eficiencia. Las lenguas mallorquinas salen de fabrica con una amplitud de 70cm de ancho y el balancín ofrece esa medida exacta. El diseño esta pensado para que la tela vaya de un punto a otro sin necesidad de costuras ni cortes, haciendo que su proceso/ejecución sea más sostenible. Una única pieza de tejido conforma el asiento, el cojín y los espacios necesarios para fijarlo a la estructura de madera de nogal.
