Mexico City's Alberto Villarreal and Michel Rojkind collaborate as AGENT, a strategic product development studio that will be exhibiting two new projects, "OUT" and "Isle of I," at the ICFF this weekend. Both of the pieces were commissioned to complement specific interiors in Mexico: "OUT" is a chair that was designed for public work areas in Monterrey's Outbox office complex, while "Isle of I" is a bathroom sink & mirror fixture for R432, a high-end residential tower in Mexico City.
The "OUT" chair is manufactured out of a single piece of plywood, such that the back leg doubles as a narrow storage space for books or magazines. The combination of the form and the material also provides "natural cushioning for the back rest."
In "Isle of I," a slim mirror meets a shallow, contoured sink, "emerging from the water surface to create a floating effect." The topography of the sink provides an accent to the largely minimalist geometry of the piece.
AGENT will be at Booth 954 at the ICFF this weekend.
