The ‘Floating Towers’ Hanging Woven Sculptures

The ‘Floating Towers’ Hanging Woven Sculptures

Argentinian artist and designer Cristián Mohaded, has created ‘Floating Towers’, a group of hanging woven sculptures.

After designing the sculpture, Cristián connected with a local artisan to create the pieces using a traditional basketry technique of northern Argentina called simbol, which is named after a plant fiber that grows in the Argentine province of Catamarca.

The end result is three sculptures that feature a variety of differently shaped pieces stacked upon one another.

Up close, different weaving techniques can be seen and appreciated.

Floating Towers was presented as a centerpiece in the “Encuentros” space, that was designed together with architects José L. Lorenzo, Josefina Roca, and Nené Herbera.
