Abel Cárcamo ()
Born in Chile and currently living and working in Paris, France, Abel Cárcamo is a truly international young designer who has shown work in exhibitions around the world, participating in events such as Paris Design Week, Collectible Brussels, Pura Cerámica in Santiago, Chile, the Bienal latinoamericana de diseño – Matadero in Madrid, Spain, Milan Design Week in Italy and Design Days Geneva in Switzerland, to name just a few.
His work turns on true craftsmanship and is inspired by the connections that can appear unexpectedly between different stylistic periods. His work is at the forefront of contemporary design, while drawing from traditional hands-on techniques. The minimalistic aesthetic that characterises his furniture is far from cold: each piece has a life and joyfulness of its own. It is the astonishing simplicity and sensuousness of his work that makes it timeless.
