Gustavo Genta

gustavo-genta-acerca-caras-armado-cubo (1).jpg

The work of Gustavo Genta is multi-informed. Like fabric, it intertwines interests, style, and approximations of form and expression possibilities of the materials. Genta has created a corpus of works featuring a system of signs and a personal language, allowing him to address different supports, media, and formats while maintaining a style that identifies him. His works maintain a dialogue with architecture and praise it, subverting the order of these vital spaces nontrivially, opening new registers to possible monochromatic games and multiple lighting effects.

Gustavo Genta is an industrial designer from Uruguay. He graduated from the Industrial Design Center of Uruguay and now lives and works in Montevideo. Gustavo loves turning ideas into practical designs, whether it's sleek electronics or comfy furniture. He's all about making things look good and work well for people.
