Jorge Pedro Nuñez was invited by Davide Cascio to collaborate on the project Catiti Catiti Imara Notia Notia Imara Ipeju, for which they took samples of elements from the past life of 9 rue du Plâtre in order to give them a second life.
The collaboration between Davide Cascio and Jorge Pedro Nuñez rests on sculptural crossbreeding. One is inspired by Carlos Raul Villanueva, the modernist Venezuelan architect, and the other by Max Bill, the Swiss concrete artist and designer. From this meeting arose research on tropicalisation, a technique that allows objects to function under severe climactic conditions. Their raw materials are finished industrially produced forms, collected at 9 rue du Plâtre which before the Lafayette Anticipations housed a school and offices. Chairs, neons, tables and boards, already transformed once by their daily use.
