ASTRAL BODIES by FINSA
It is estimated that hundreds of meteorites of different sizes enter the Earth's surface every year. Since ancient times they have generated admiration and curiosity in equal parts ... Thousands of years later, these meteorites are the subject of experimentation by ENORME Studio through FINSA’s new material, Fibracolour. MDF coloured boards covered with the most exuberant colours, textures and finishes that have shaped the Astral Bodies project. The inmersive experience of this project has been created by Vitamin-Arte.
Creativity is the tool and Fibracolour is the material
Fibracolour offers new possibilities in decoration and interior design world. This DM coloured in mass provides aesthetic and functional novelties. It can be covered with natural veneer or melamine, and allows the application of textures on the surface. The treatment of its surface with lacquers, waxes and varnishes is also a new posibility to work with this new material. Since it is mass coloured allows pantography, mechanization and leaves the board core as an aesthetic value.
Names for otherworldly elements
When a meteorite touches earth it is baptized with the name where it was found. This is the case of Auria, Baroña, Cervo, Ézaro, Allariz, Herbón, Elviña, Sálvora and Trevinca. They represent the places of Galician geography where the astral bodies landed on their arrival to earth.
The composition of each of the astral bodies is detailed so that the viewer can contemplate that each of the pieces are formed. Each meteor tells the story that has brought it to earth, in addition, we can contemplate the type of material that is in each of them.
Auria is the meteorite that has fallen in the city of Ourense, hence its composition of yellow and black Fibracolour, reminiscent of the ancient Roman excavations of the city.
On the shore of the Atlantic Ocean is the castro of Baroña, one of the oldest Celtic settlements in Galicia. Another of our meteorites takes the name of this millennial site and is inspired by its different heights and infinite views. Also on the coast is Cervo, a small town full of color and vitality gives its name to a meteorite composed of red, gray, anthracite gray and black Fibracolour.
The gray Fibracolour, together with the Terracota Nova melamine design, are the protagonists of Ézaro, one of the meteorites with the most personality. Its colors transport the visitor to the area of cliffs and waterfalls more known in the region. Similarly, in the province of A Coruña, we find the district of Elviña, a population that maintains a great relationship with the academic world is composed of many layers of gray Fibracolour, which give a monolith perspective to a piece full of forms and subtleties.
In Allariz the vivid and attractive colors of the multitude of gardens that flood the city are the inspiration to recreate this gray Fibracolour meteorite and the Lila Hawaii melamine design. Likewise, the talcum green and the black Fibracolour make up Herbón. The meteorite takes its name from this municipality of Padrón, where the production of peppers is its differentiating element.
Another new meteorite, named as Sálvora Island, famous for its beaches, cliffs and wildlife, is composed of black Fibracolour and veneers in a natural way such as Palisandro Mumbai, Kandy Ebony and Lebanon Cedar.
Finally, we find Trevinca, the highest meteorite in the Astral Bodies By Finsa exhibition, which takes its name from the highest mountain in Galicia. Composed of black Fibracolour, this piece will be one of the focuses of attention of this astral world that we have created together with ENORME Studio and Vitamin-arte.
