If each of Carbonell’s creations are living organisms, then his collections, too, grow and evolve over time. “Twins” is a variation of his 2009 award-winning project, titled “Evolution.” Shaped like cocoons, Evolution’s iconic chairs create a private space for a person or persons to recline. “Twins” comes in two. As the surroundings change, so do their functions. They are straight-backed, elongated and slender, specific to the cityscape of New York. The paper mache forms light up and intertwine, bringing users closer together in honor of the city that never sleeps.
