The Bamer Hotel used to be one of many emblems in downtown Mexico City during the 1940's. After the massive earthquake that shook the City in 1985, the Bamer Hotel was abandoned and sealed to public use for almost twelve years. With the help of Fundación del Centro Histórico, as much as 80 pieces of furniture from the rooms were able to be retrieved before the building's demolition.
Since the furniture was dependant of the architecture and was heavily damaged during it's desmantling, the project urged to return their functional capabilities through a design process.
The prosthetic design is made using high quality playwood and CNC technology, enabling them to be easily reproduced and repaired if necessary and are completely independent from the original mahagony and oak furniture. They remain dependant of an architectural space but are no longer limited to a specific time or place.
The project was granted with a special recognition during the Premios Quorum in 2012.
