About The Piece
Spaghetti Corten takes its inspiration from the Parisian park bench as Reinoso has twisted the familiar and conjured up a playful, fantastical alter reality. The bench has an inescapable surrealist influence, with a poetic, elegant repose with the empowered seat slats twisting and growing into graceful curves of rusty corten steel.Spaghetti Corten is a conceptual work which also showcases a handcrafted dexterity through its organic form. The teak wood of the seat with its natural patina, works harmoniously with the corten steel. Both materials are protected against natural outdoor weathering.Reinoso’s multicultural background has informed his desire to discover links between different cultural aesthetics. The Argentinean heritage of craftsmanship is intrinsic in his work, which has the unusual ability of serving a functional purpose as well as igniting emotion in the user. Spaghetti Corten borders between sculpture and design then, offering a vision in which function coexists with imagination.
