Design icons in the works of Dani Miras

Dani Miras |

Dani Miras is an industrial designer and 3D artist from Barcelona. In his works, he reconstructs ethereal, nostalgic landscapes enveloped in a reassuring warmth that takes you back to the summer, to holidays in beautiful villas with swimming pools shimmering in the sunlight. In Miras’s works one recognises a love of interiors, furniture and aesthetics linked to organisation and order, understood as the search for a perfect composition, the kind that comes naturally to you when you see them in person.

3D also becomes a poetic possibility for Dani Miras, for the works are not realistic architectural studio renderings. The exasperation of the ideal component of the settings is the fascinating element of these works. The magic and emotion are provided by elements that are deliberately disconnected from realism but which make everything even more beautiful to imagine and enviable. Miras often inserts details that are recognisable as design icons (supercars such as the Porsche and the Ultrafragola mirror by Ettore Sottsass), but also quotations from TV series of the past and the music of the 1960s-70s-80s.
