Motivated by expanding the possibilities of our workshop’s handmade natural textiles, we approached one of Mexico’s most significant industrial designer in order to jointly develop a version of his emblematic “Mexican chair” that has taken him more than 50 years of developing and perfecting its shape and ergonomics.
Our Studio is dedicated to the creation of Author objects –from space interventions, monumental installations to clothing – With more than 20 years of experience, we are devoted to the research of new materials, objects, space typologies, and tools, like the development of architecture and creative building. We bet for a manual and artisanal production in dialogue with the digital, always informed by constant research and exploration of processes for handmade, “The Art of Workmanship”. David Pye
The Studio showed the possibilities of the natural fiber sansevieria to the eighty-four years old architect and designer who created a chair collection, Oscar Haggerman. Astonished by this fiber yet unknown to him, he discovered two main qualities dear to him: being a Mexican natural fiber and the fact that it is produced within local communities in his country. Being an inspiration of a popular Mexican design, these perfected yet humble chairs are now part of Mexico’s material landscape and collective consciousness.
