La Nuclear (quite literally The Nuclear in spanish) was created to depict the results in a long research about the state of industrial design in Mexico.
The research was based on observing what the new designers in the country where doing and the patterns that appeared, finally proposing a theory about the mexican design and creating an object that responded to this theory.
La Nuclear was the result of this process, in which the need to experiment with new materials and inspirations instead of the ones used by the indigenous population was one of the most important needs in the new mexican design as well as reducing the discourse the design generates.
This coffee table is made from gray quarry stone, very typical in the region of San Luis Potosí, and glass, the stone was sculpted in a local workshop.
The name comes from it´s looks, which are reminiscent of a nuclear power plant's cooling towers
