El Ultimo Grito refelcts on “How contemporary culture incorporates, re-uses and re-interprets the systems and structures that it has inherited”, 'Peckham Shield', 2010
The well-known internationally active design author and critic Sophie Lovell curated the next group exhibition ‘Freak Show’ at the Berlin design gallery HELMRINDERKNECHT featuring objects by designers such as El Ultimo Grito, Martí Guixé, Kueng Caputo and others – all “freaks” that are confronting us with our deadlocked expectations of design. The showcased objects reflect the designers thoughts and doubts about social, theoretical and methodical norms.
El Ultimo Grito, Rosario Hurtado and Roberto Feo
The Aram Gallery in London dedicated their current exhibition to the Berlin and London based design team of El Ultimo Grito. Three collections of work from 2009 and 2010 will be showcased, among them a group of large blown glass installation pieces exploring architectural archetypes created with master glassblowers in Italy.

Roberto Feo and Rosario Hurtado are the Post Disciplinary studio EL ULTIMO GRITO. Their work “reflects upon their interest in how contemporary culture incorporates, re-uses and re-interprets the systems and structures that it has inherited. Within this context the challenge is to create new objects, which can be typologically disentangled from our conventional (learned) understanding of the world, and thus offer alternative ways to live, work and communicate.”
