“Engawa” is a set of furniture that shapes the place of the occidental hall, basing itself on the traditional oriental culture. The project created by Belén Tenorio is inspired by the language and aesthetics of non-habitable spaces in construction sites. Its name references a typical Japanese construction around the houses connecting the interior with the exterior.
The idea sets from a society where there is no connection between user, form and space. The designer wants to giving rise to the trivialization and depersonalization of spaces and objects, and to the philosophy of using and throwing away.
This project wants to achieve person-environment unity and harmony, establishing the house as an extension of it. Build an interior-exterior communication, generating a third space of symbiosis and transition, from which you can observe and enter each of the opposite elements, and thus complement them.
