Lantern is born as an exercise with the strict purpose of breaking the traditional way these materials are perceived. A friendly table lamp that suggests a different way to interact with a light source remembering the way alcohol lamps are grabbed. Thanks to the raw materials that it’s made of, Lantern generates a warm and cozy light becoming a perfect companion for intimate moments and environments.
In search of a noble plastic manifesto Corazón Moreno has been created by different perspectives of young Mexican minds, based on their memories and visions. Corazón Moreno is a Mexican collection focused on transforming the passions of Mexico into functional objects with a contemporary language that expresses a way of being, not an identity. The collection seeks to create an interpretation of existence, emotions and desires of the people of the Mexican land.
Manufactured entirely by master artisans from central Mexico, the collection was launched simultaneously at Milan and Mexico City during Fuorisaloni 2015 at Promote Design’s Design IN and during the Corredor Cultural Roma Condesa at high end interior and decoration store Dimitri in April 2015.
