Ciudad Mosaic Tiles by NEL
by sabine7 / October 5, 2010

Ciudad, a series of hydraulic mosaics or "pisos de pasta" by NEL, is a graphic representation of an urban landscape.


The geometry is broken up by variations in colour to depict streets, buildings and open spaces. Combined in various arrangements, the cement tiles create abstract neighbourhoods and cities.


The tiles, produced by Job, require a manual manufacturing process, as colours are laid down separately in order to attain the variety. The idea of a modular floor is also an extension of contemporary suburban developments that can be extended, sometimes indefinitely.


NEL, a collective of Mexican designers, participated in Uniendo Puntos (Connecting the Dots), an exhibition with a focus on the connection between Latin-American and Spanish Design. The exhibition, launched during Valencia Disseny Week, was curated by Luis Eslava.

NEL is made up of Ricardo Casas, Alejandro Castro, Héctor Esrawe, Emiliano Godoy, and Cecilia León de la Barra.

The exhibition runs through October 24, 2010 in the Sala Estudio General. La Nau (Universitat de València). C/ Universidad, 2.
