Estela Installation

By Raúl de la Cerda


Raul de la Cerda has once again showcased his design prowess with the introduction of this new piece for Omet. This year, he has unveiled two additions that seamlessly integrate into the Chaac collection, originally launched last year. Continuing with the overarching theme, these new creations pay homage to pre-Hispanic Mexico by abstracting Mayan hieroglyphics and transforming them into a visual language—a testament to De la Cerda's belief in design as a form of communication.

The Estela wall piece is crafted from raw aluminum, exploring similar communication concepts through a unique interplay of hieroglyphics turned into art. It draws inspiration from the ancient Mayan stelae, which were used to convey messages—whether commemorating the passing of a loved one, recounting a battle, or expressing other significant events.

Both Tikal and Estela, while being part of the Chaac collection, distinguish themselves with a more artistic and authentic language. De la Cerda maintains his commitment to commemorating and paying homage to ancestors, using design as a conduit for cultural expression and appreciation. These collections stand as a testament to the designer's dedication to preserving the rich heritage of pre-Hispanic Mexico while infusing it with a contemporary and artistic touch.
