Director Biography - Nikola Lorenzin, Lucas Muñoz

Nikola Lorenzin was born in Belgrade the 19th of December in 1989 right before the dissolution of Ex-Jugoslavia. He completes studies in Energy Engineering and Renewable Energies between Pisa and London, and while working as an energy consultant in Madrid, he starts dedicating himself to photography, studying in the schools LENS and BlankPaper. In 2017, after participating in the film Summer School Filmidee, he produces and directs his first short movie Kuća (2017, 12’) together with Niccolò Natali, presenting it at the 65. Martovski Festival of Documentary and Short Film of Belgrade within the national short movie competition. In 2019 he directs the experimental short documentary Space Memories (2019, 4’) together with Spanish designer Lucas Muñoz, which forms part of the wider project The Rocket Trail and which is in distribution. He lives and works in Milan where he co-founded Santabelva, a collective of directors.

Lucas Muñoz Muñoz (1983) is a Spanish designer, artist and craft traveler based between the Netherlands and Spain. His practice spins around the functionality and materiality of use-objects, working a field that intertwines the need for use of our daily-life artefacts with the capacity they have to carry and embody meaning from an artistic approach. Most of his work find home at museum and gallery exhibitions as well as private collectors, while some other remain thought exercises that become sensorial digressions about our social and man-made landscapes. A practice that most of times renders physical in his atelier but also during local interventions abroad, being the later ones mainly in collaboration with local creatives or cultural institutions.

Lucas has been making and producing since his early twenties. He founded eStudio enPieza! in Madrid, with David Tamame. His work there traveled the world and became part of private and public design collections (as London´s Royal Science Museum permanent founds ).

Now, since 2012, works on his own from the Netherlands. Crafting pieces that take a personal look to our artificial environment. Using tools as humour and rawness, his body of work includes a wide range of typologies - that span from boats and speakers to chairs and lamps. In addition to being a workshop maker, he also develops conceptual and critical work based on local and context-driven research.
