JAC4

TRANSLATION PENDING

Hay una característica común en las 4 mesas que finalmente hemos conseguido sacar de esta colección y más que con la historia que conservan, viene dada por la coyuntura del lote de maderas rescatadas. 

Me explico: esta es una de nuestras historias favoritas y sin embargo es uno de los lotes de maderas más cortos! Decidimos que para poder sacar hasta 4 unidades, usaríamos las vigas solo para las tapas, que es donde más lucen. Las bases las haríamos bien sólidas y en madera maciza, pero de tal manera que pasaran un poco desapercibidas y la protagonista fuera siempre la tapa.

Para cerrar esta colección, al igual que con #jac2 y #jac3, seguimos fieles a las geometrías curvilíneas que nos sugiere una bailaora de flamenco como Jacoba. 

En este caso decidimos hacer una base de 2 elementos con una forma orgánica como alternativa al concepto de “4 patas” que habíamos usado en las otras mesas.

Las hicimos en madera de Iroko, las tostamos un poco al sol para que oscurecieran y las acabamos con una deliciosa cera natural que les da una textura de seda.

La tapa es redondeada en ambos extremos y aloja encapsulado en resina a un clavo en su agujero de origen.

La base es desmontable para transporte.

    STORY

    This dwelling is covered by the Local Council´s heritage protection programme. It is listed as a bourgeois house, with rectangular main patio, 4 axis façade and lateral porch. The historic balconies and cierros (gaditan name for an enclosed balcony) are supported but fine overhanging imposts. The moulded cornice in the façade is another example of an altogether splendid construction.

    In April we were invited to have a look into this run down building in Calle Mirador 11, very close to Puerta Tierra, the landmark that separates the historic city of Cádiz from the newer developments. It was in the process of being demolished by the contractor for refurbishment. We were joyful as kids running up and down the shabby central staircase, discovering rooms and corners and trying to figure out how life was in that multifamily style housing from the late XVIII. century. This was a popular building layout in poorer quarters of the city where people living in adjacent smaller flats would share common resources such as toilets, kitchens and the moorish Aljibe (water well reservoir). The building was listed in the Local Council´s heritage protection scheme with a rating 0 (maximum) with regards to underlying archeology and rating 2 for ethnology.

    TABLES

    Jacoba Collection

    JAC4

    This is the first table we created out of this batch full of character and number 3 in the beginnings of Amber.

    We learned that Jacoba Ortega Diaz, the addressee of the memorial plaque attached to the entrance of the building, was the eldest of 9 brothers and sisters. Number 11 at Calle Mirador was a multifamily dwelling, a popular construction in the Barrio de la Merced quarter, where neighbouring families would share toilets and other resources such as the water well or “aljibe”. Further happenings in Jacoba´s life and trips took place in the company of like-minded bullfighters and other members of the flamenco dancing community and we couldn´t help but think of a large and humble dining table where the group could sit around for a hearty meal.

    This is how this tabletop happened. The legs are made of massive beechwood that we coloured in a subtle light green so the top would pop.

    The legwork is dismountable for transport.
