Photography has become an essential part of his professional practice. Looking the world through different lenses and perspectives, he observes and reflects how perception is a key element to designing, how people perceive objects and environments and how they interact with them.

Master in Designed Objects

Carlos holds an MFA in Designed Object from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This was a tipping point to gain knowledge, explore new materials, and to refine his idea about how important design pedagogy will determine the outcomes of design.
During his studies, his main interest was the development of a framework that allows to provide not only object-oriented solutions but rather system-oriented solutions.

Just as life, hot glass is: Always in movement, making you sweat, burning you if not careful, frustrating you and exciting you at the same time, and above all giving you the most rewarding experiences once you get a hold of it. (And yes, that's me.)

During his master degree studies, he explored working with different materials, hot glass became his passion. Working with this material taught him the importance of planning step by step, to work focused under stress and to make prompt decisions when unexpected results happen.
