Dermatological High Design

High-end Philippino handbag exporter – Aranaz commissioned London based designer Juan Carlo Calma to reinterpret their flagship boutique in Manila, Philippines. The result is an interior space that possesses a reflective surface similar to the luxury evening bags on display. Calma adds, “I was really interested in exotic and luxurious skins such as crocodile skin, which is used for the construction of a bag. If you look at animal skins, they have a tessellated type of geometry and I wanted to explore that. Most of my projects are always looking at nature or are inspired by algorithms found in nature.”
