HECHO I, and the Genesis of Design
For me, the concepts usually have a base that starts from the analog, the artisan, the artistic. These are the main sensations; I usually draw inspiration from paying attention to my senses – for example, the previous collection, HECHO I, arose from contemplating a photo by Wolfgang Tillmans which featured carnations; it evoked sensations of grunge, and reminded me of carnations from my childhood. I began to extract colors, and I made a palette with watercolor; I photographed that palette, and from there I digitized the colors, and began to develop patterns that, when materialized, were evocative of the essence of the Bauhaus.
HECHO means ‘fact’ – a thing that is true, and/or a thing that is real, and concrete. It typified the style of working that I had in mind; I began the project the same day that this idea came to me.
