At this point of interior design that seems that everything is done, comes Tomás Alonso (Vigo 1974) and shows us that no, that he has something to say about it. The phrase that nobody is a prophet in their own land but the trajectory of this globetrotting Galician comes to reiterate it.
Based in London, he left Spain at 19 and left for the United States, where he trained as Industrial designer. From there he made a leap to Italy, and a much larger one to Australia. A true globetrotter. Later he went to London to study a Master in Royal Collage of Art and it is also there where his pieces have begun to have popularity. So much that the London Design Museum He has included them in his collection.
After all these trips, lessons and experiences, Tomás Alonso's work soon translated into his own line of linear and poetic objects. His method can be summarized as a synthesis that focuses on the functionality as an absolute value turning an idea into a product.
The aesthetic qualities of their objects reveal the expressive potential of each specific material, which is also their main source of inspiration, wood and metal. His metal and grid vision of the thonet chair, its tubular coat racks or the simple shapes of its tables and benches have earned it international recognition.
For her border between art and design It is never confusing. For us either, Tomás Alonso makes art on every object.
