Table, coat rack, chair or even sculpture, what is Arauto? In this singular work, Brazilian designer Pedro Paulø-Venzon invites us to discuss the possible uses for the object, seeking our gaze to define it, with its absence of limitations.
As an embodiment of discourse, Arauto — comprised of Nero Marquina marble and steel — still is and always has been a revival of minimalist elements, of lines and circles, spheres and voids. Perhaps it only embodies pure functionality.
Arauto figures in interspace and announces the différance, returning to the problems of modernity and their transcendence.
After much consideration, I’ve made my own conclusion as to what this design represents, but I prefer to keep it for myself and just ask, what is Arauto to you?
