Ciudad Doméstica by Javier Peña Ibáñez
Madrid-Based architect Javier Peña Ibáñez brings the city into our homes. Transcending the urban and domestic scale, furniture and wallcovering-motifs follow the urban layout of Logroño, Spain. Installed in a container, a white grid seamlessly continues from the floor onto the wall. Modular seating, tables, and shelving units fit in like puzzle pieces.
Peña questions how we define our private and public environment. ‘It comes from the thought of how we live in the city and how we build common spaces. It is from that point that Ciudad Doméstica begins, understanding the city as our own home,’ he explains. As a creative researcher, Peña’s multimedia projects often engage the citizen of a city in a dialogue about architecture’s limits.
