PREMIO JIIFF 2019 - Diego Farias

Nací en 1975 en Rosario, una ciudad industrial como tantas en el Uruguay de la época. A edad temprana heredé el oficio metalúrgico de mi padre, donde adquirí las primeras técnicas en manipulación y soldadura, que desarrollé en diferentes escuelas años después. A mis cuarenta, por obra de una necesidad intrínseca, plasmé mis primeros impulsos artísti- cos en forma de barcos y peces, lo que me trajo a vivir a José Ignacio, donde a diario busco siluetas en la chatarra oxidada.

I was born in 1975 in Rosario, an industrial city like so many others in Uruguay at that time. At an early age I inherited my father's trade, metallurgy, with which I acquired my first manipulation and welding techniques, which I developed in different schools years later. In my forties, driven by an instrinsic need, I gave expression to my first artistic impuses in the shape of boats and fish; which brought me to live in José Ignacio, where on a daily basis I look for silhouettes in rusty scrap metal I find lying around.

 

PREMIO JIIFF 2020

El premio JIIFF 2020 es una piedra ágata teñida con tintes naturales que inspira su coloración en el azul del mar, el cielo y la naturaleza. Fue creado por Estudio Tosca, el único estudio de diseño industrial uruguayo que se ha enfocado en el desarrollo y producción de productos creados a partir de piedras preciosas nacionales. El azul del mar, del cielo y la naturaleza inspiraron un Estudio Tosca para la elección de este premio.

Los diseñadores industriales Cecilia Cosafúa y Alfonso Martínez, hijo de los fundadores de Estudio Tosca, el único estudio de diseño industrial uruguayo que se ha enfocado en el desarrollo y la producción de productos creados a partir de piedras preciosas nacionales, como Ágatas, Amatistas, Jaspes y Cuarzos .
Si bien existen yacimientos en otras partes del mundo, los que se encuentran en nuestro país producen las mejores piedas de estas variedades, consideradas a nivel mundial como de calidad A.
Sus productos son objetos de diseño que parten de la propia piedra como materia prima fundamental, pero fusionada a un material secundario, como es el madero o el metal, creando objetos de alto nivel competitivo en el mercado nacional e internacional.
Terminaciones perfectas, un pulido flexible y piezas casi esculturales y únicas, son el leitmotiv de sus colecciones. Como no hay 2 piedras iguales, tampoco hay 2 objetos de Tosca idénticos, por lo que cada cliente que obtiene uno de sus productos, obtiene un objeto de diseño industrial, pero totalmente exclusivo.

The 2020 JIIFF award is an agate stone dyed with natural dyes that inspires its coloring in the blue of the sea, the sky and nature. It was created by Estudio Tosca, the only Uruguayan industrial design studio that has focused on the development and production of products created from national gemstones.

Industrial designers Cecilia Cosafúa and Alfonso Martínez, son of the founders of Estudio Tosca, the only Uruguayan industrial design studio that has focused on the development and production of products created from national gemstones, such as Agates, Amethysts, Jaspers and quartz.

Although there are deposits in other parts of the world, those found in our country produce the best pieces of these varieties, considered worldwide as quality A.

Its products are design objects that start from the stone itself as a fundamental raw material, but fused to a secondary material, such as wood or metal, creating objects of high competitive level in the national and international market.

Perfect finishes, flexible polishing and almost sculptural and unique pieces, are the leitmotif of their collections. As there are no 2 identical stones, there are also 2 identical Tosca objects, so that each client that obtains one of their products, obtains an object of industrial design, but totally exclusive.
