Celosía is a Mozarab architectural element.
It comes from the word
celoso, jealous in Spanish; referring to the protection of private space.
Porcelosía is an interior architectural element composed by semi-translucent porcelain modules supported by a metal framework and subtly put in motion by a fine mechanism.
It works as a porous membrane, a filter of light and privacy. Its visual lightness and the game of light and shadow generated by its wave-like movements evokes the pleasant light of sun flickering through tree leaves. The porcelain screen induces a feeling of protection and, at the same time, the material’s delicacy portrays the fragility of privateness itself. It also works as a center piece - a contemplation vortex that influences a space’s character and adds aesthetic value to the ambience.
