The Four Folds

Marta Armengol Suquet

Bio

I’m an architect formed in ETSAB (Barcelona).

In my work, through various disciplines such architecture, design, installations and sculpture, I play with experimentation, and I work in research and conceptualization of spaces and objects, using errors and material possibilities rather than searching for definitive solutions.

I work with the materials out of which we construct our surroundings, and opens up new spaces within a world we thought we had defined.

I believe that it is by mixing the boundaries between architecture, design, and scenography; between installations and sculpture or between the practice and research of architecture itself; that new ideas and innovation flourishes.

I was co–founder of Cierto Estudio, and member between 2014 and 2017. During this period of my life the studio had different recognitions: Special Mention Solvia Innova Prize 2014, Finalist of Solvia Innova Award 2015, and was awarded with two Premi Ajac X 2016 in Unbuilt Work + Furniture and more recently with the First Prize for the construction of a social housing building in “Illa Glòries” in Barcelona.

The last few years I have exhibited my work at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Matadero Madrid, Dutch Design Festival 2018 in Eindhoven and in different galleries in Madrid and Barcelona.

I have recently collaborated with the MANIERA Brussels gallery making a set of blown glass pieces that have been presented at various design fairs: Nomad Circle St. Moritz in February 2020, Collectible Design Fair in March 2020 and currently at HUIB HOSTE’S DE BEIR HOUSE in Knokke.

The project consists of a collection of Borosilicate blown and non-blown glass pieces, which together create complex structures.

The blown pieces form a voluminous shape in a random, non-uniform way, achieving an unpredictable result. They become bubbles in space, reminiscent of the universe. 

Resulting indirectly from chance, these pieces create tangible, dreamlike worlds, leaving the viewer in a sort of cosmic harmony.
