What we used to call series are now collections of limited units and in some cases, capsules.
Our CÂPÂ collections have had a trajectory through Latin American and world landscapes. With CÂPÂ we have observed the microscopic cuts of the stems of some plants, we have traveled to the depths of the sea and described the groupings of the corals. And so, as in the Eames short “Power of Ten,” we have also strayed far enough from the earth's crust to delineate the topographies of the hills, peaks, and mountain ranges of some incredible places in the world.
We are interested in nature, but in CÂPÂ nature is also made up of cities and people, that is, between nature and artifice we create our collections and regardless of whether it is of a biological or inorganic construction, we travel through places exploring culture and its landscape. In this way and in our endless journey through our world, we have talked about the Alhambra, the African Savannah and the bifurcations of the rivers. Lately we have been interested in redrawing animal, fish and bird species that are on the way to extinction or that are part of our territory, a territory full of biodiversity, a territory of countless species.
In CÂPÂ as well as in the tropics where we live, we try to express diversity through our pieces. With it, the innumerable textures and colors that bring us closer to being timeless pieces that, through manual and artisan work, highlight the qualities of life.
‘Esmeralda’ is our limited CAPA capsule. We have named it after the color attributed to this stone. Emerald is a deep, transparent green that connects us to the earth and fills us with tranquility. It is a unique color that appears in the limitless shades of green that occur in the tropics. It is preciousness. Pleats, hammered elements, and convex threads are some of the pieces that make up this capsule.
Warm-blooded animals !
They walk, jump and flutter, their singing wakes us up every morning and when we hear them we remember nature and we are amazed by the biodiversity that accompanies our lands. This collection is composed of 5 birds; Toucans, Macaws, Hummingbirds, Tanagers and Barranqueros. Birds of the tropics, birds of majestic colors and large beaks. Birds in Latin, animals with feathers that cover the body.
The ocean of CÂPÂ
Marina is the ocean of CÂPÂ, where creatures of diverse nature inhabit. They swim freely through its waters and their movement is a dance that fills the water with iridescent colors. Rocks, sands, corals and algae witness from their site the meandering passage of beings of all shapes and sizes.
Simple, daring, handmade and genuine are the pieces that make up our m·o·m collection
Below we make a chronological description of our collections
The Habitats series aims to highlight the beauty of three different ecosystems, we want to create small landscapes of flora and fauna and travel through three places with different living soils.
The first Tundra a cold place of furry animals, here we highlight the fox. The second is Sabana, a region of thick trees and animals with gnarled horns; the baobab and the gazelle. Third and last the tropical forest. A place where we are, an exuberant place rich in biodiversity. In times of COVID, we pay tribute to fauna and flora!

Among dwarf bushes they sniff reindeer and foxes in search of hares that jump on the damp moss. Over the high frozen mountains and a white plain, it stretches to the horizon reminding us that it does not matter how cold it is when the water gushes.
Between golden manes burned by the intense sun and tropical meadows with little tree density, animals with long and strong legs can be seen. It is an encounter of majestic mammals. Each one with its intrinsic beauty due to its phenotype that adapts to the life needs of this meadow.

As if the heat of the earth arose through an invisible line that separates the world in two, the energy of diversity expands from the tropical forest, filling everything it touches with shapes and colors. His tangled life sighs in songs and flutters allowing our existence

La Alhambra, Asilah y Fes
CÂPÂ Marrakech 2019. It is an aesthetic appreciation, which starts from a journey through three cities and buildings Moorish or with Moorish influence; The Alhambra, in Spain, Fes and Asilah cities of Morocco. It is a look at the Arab patterns that are related to the groups that were made in Art Nouveau. To the colors, pigments and minor handicraft elements, which relate the genuineness of this culture. We appropriate the decoration system where a geometric figure from its repetitive shape, rotation, builds a fabric.

Submerged in the Amazon in the middle of a place with unlimited abundance, where it is not possible to understand the number of shapes, of green, blue, ocher and yellow tones, “Plantae” is born. A grouping of various leaves; meandering philoendrons, broad, pointed leaves, perforated leaves, and irregular tessellated foliage.

The series * Montanea * (mountain in Latin) aims to subtly delineate the surfaces of some peaks, mountain ranges, mountains and massifs in Colombia and the world, restoring and constructing the morphology and histories of these places.

Wonders of nature
Wonders of Nature * is the series of the year 2014, it is a reflection on the work of Ernst Haeckel. In this series the pieces are made by observing Haeckel's animal, mineral and plant illustrations that are classified by their similar geometries. When you look at their work, you can see that an animal can have the same geometric principles as a mineral or a leaf. Photography - Juan Carlos Hernandez
Vortices and Ramifications
The series * Vortices and Ramifications * of the year 2013 is based on the representation of the deltas that may appear in the morphology of rivers, simultaneously with the vortex configurations of water or air.
