Abdon y Lucas

Barbosa studio was imprinted on the pavilions of the Furniture Fair of Valencia 2006. Specifically they designed the stand by Abdón & Lucas, one of the main manufacturers of upholstered furniture in Spain, and a firm the studio has collaborated with in the redesign of pieces. Under an eclectic tone where classic and modern is mixed, space atmosphere has been created by some photographs of classic Roman and Greek pieces made with permission from the National Arqueological Museum.

These photographs have been treated graphically mixing them with contemporary graffiti traces. Altogether represents an elegant transgressor exercise which becomes the representation of the very first outline of a later style spread internationally. Messages as “The New Classic” or “Culture” are repeated along this project, contributing to its intellectual richness.
