Guillermo Santomà's Creations Offer a Striking Juxtaposition

Guillermo Santomà's maximalist installations adorn the interior of this extravagant mansion in Madrid. The Barcelona-based designer's "site-specific spatial interventions" were displayed during the Madrid Design Festival which took place in the month of February.

The lavish work is described as "transgressive" and the established juxtaposition between Guillermo Santomà's creations and the extravagant mansion is surely a key component of perception.

The work is set in a luxurious 19th-century building that is surrendered to the decadent baroque style. As the artist's work is rather contemporary in its aesthetic and media use, the installations establish a "dialogue between the 19th and 21st centuries," which guarantees a worthwhile, sensorial experience of artistic merit, historical nuances, and unparallel luxury standard.
