Federico Churba Buenos Aires, Argentina

Above all to look at the world. To peer at it and understand it for what it is: a vessel of possibilities, a multicolour and multispace store of infinite raw materials whose shapes and qualities we remove, combine and synthesise to create new objects. An attentive and singular search that precedes the creation of linies, plans and volumes. A creative and critical look that interprets and reinterprets the junctions and stresses that exist within us.

To explore the world and learn from it. To be open to discovering materials, their properties, flaws and language. To question processes and ways of working. To get involved physically: to smell, see, touch, listen. To experiment is to create alternatives, variations, synthesis and, fundamentally, to never feel like you've achieved the final result. To intervene in space. To inhabit, organise and transform it and make it functional.

To inhabit a space is to do more than occupy it; it is to make it your own, to have a close and, at the same time, distant relationship with its objects. To design is to understand surfaces and their folds, to push the limit, go beyond it and then return. It is to look, explore an inhabit.

Federico Churba was born in Buenos Aires on September 4th, 1976. He graduated as an industrial designer from the University of Buenos Aires in 2001. He participated in the Domus Academy workshop "Raices Débiles" (Weak Roots)
His designs have been exhibited internationally at the fairs 100% Design, in London 2003, ICFF, New York in 2004, Pitty Living, Milan 2006, and SaloneSatellite, Milan 2010 and 2011.
He won second prize for "Casa FOA, diseño de autor" (Casa FOA, artist's design) in 2002 and 2003, the prize "100% Foundation" en 2003, "CMD, contenedores para el mundo" (CMD, containers for the world) and also a Design Report Award Special Mention in Milano 2010.
Federico Churba was a lecturer at the University of Buenos Aires and has been invted to present at seminars and courses for designers and architects such as the series "Ardi, Arquitectura + Diseño", organised by the Sociedad Central de Arquitectos (SCA), and at the international interior design and design meeting "Dara ID", amongst others.
