As part of the Re(D) project, we intervened in and reevaluated designs from the past. Redesign is part of our vision. We also seek to re-create, reinvent, renew, reuse, and recycle notions that are part of contemporary culture. Our manual and mechanical interventions on Panton chairs resulted in objects that blur the lines between art, architecture, and design. Re(D) points to the ways in which urban growth and mass production can be dehumanizing. The application of graphics to three-dimensional forms shakes up the concept of mass production and multiples. It reorders the unit, placing it within a kind of chaos, blending chaos as survival that is unique to Latin American urban aesthetics.
