During the 14th, 15th and 16th of February, young students selected by an expert committee, will come from arts schools from Tel Aviv, New York, Antwrp and Bilbao to join in the second Aristocrazy Design Bootcamp.

Along with Mayice studio, whose essence is to respect the material, its story and functionality; the goal of the program is to know one of the most complex, delicate and magical materials when creating a piece, sculpture or shape. The eight students will have to create a conceptual piece that represents the values of a jewel and the soul of the material.
During the last half of February, Madrid will become a capital of design, giving a voice to artists, techniques and creations, putting them on the spotlight. That’s why, the artefacts that resulted from last year’s Aristocrazy Design Bootcamp will be showcased on the windows of our Serrano 42 and Gran Vía 26 stores.

“A ceramic vase that represents our origin. Adapting to our body to show it with pride and care.”
“The expiring body, that withers away and dissolves, turning into dust and sand. Past, present and future. Time depends on whose watching and where he stands. A piece that enables us to stop the time that enslaves us.”
“The fragility of the human structure. The delicacy of a hand touching the body, protecting and defending it.”
