During London Design Festival 2018, The Aram Gallery is pleased to host ‘Hilos Invisibles (Invisible Threads)’ – an exhibition of new Uruguayan design based on the work of modernist architect Julio Vilamajó.

About

In 2017, designer Matteo Fogale held a collaborative workshop as part of a residency at the Vilamajó House Museum in Montevideo, Uruguay. The house was designed in 1930 by prominent Uruguayan architect Julio Vilamajó, who with Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer, was a design consultant for the UN Headquarters in New York.

Several technical detail drawings from the house were discovered by Fogale during the residency. These have been used as the starting point for seven new designs, developed between Fogale and seven Uruguayan design studios. The exhibition title Hilos Invisibles refers to a connection between the past drawings of the house and the new interpretations by the designers. The exhibition will debut the furniture and lighting projects, and also provide context about the house, workshop, and life of the architect.
