The geometric, dark and cryptic shapes created by Spanish creative studio LAS ÁNIMAS make the mind wander in secret temples, post-apocalyptic landscapes and ruins from ancient civilizations, extinguished long time ago. Massive silhouettes of apparent roughness and murky simplicity contrast with finely handcrafted surfaces and textures.

LAS ÁNIMAS are Trini Salamanca and Pablo Párraga, a creative duo founded and established in Seville, Spain. Their work has a strong symbolic, mystical, tribal and esoteric component, and moves on the frontiers between art and design.

Using a language of minimalist, geometric and iterative patterns, they experiment with the materials, their forms and textures, to create an iconography of retrofuturist, transgressor, brutalist and deeply evocative aesthetics.

The couple’s visual and emotional universe includes references as distant as science fiction, anthropology, the distortion of reality, cybernetics, duality, experimental electronic music, or architectural brutality; an imaginary that joins the elements of their social environment, recoding and projecting them from an atypical and personal insight.

Their corpus includes limited edition pieces of furniture, sculptures, interventions and unique objects. Sacred objects, created by themselves in their own studio, that challenge functionality and form; a symbolic Aesthetics dimension full of emotions that lead to a spiritual atmosphere lost in time.
