Description

Ten pieces of different materials challenge the laws of equilibrium. Making use of the same typology and different scales, the collection shows the balance between the technique, the people, and the ideas that inspire us. Each piece was produced using different traditional trades, craft techniques, and Mexican industrial technologies that Joel has explored at different points in his career.

Joel has managed to understand the state of the industry in the country and its dialogue with design thanks to its broad horizon and extensive experience, which have allowed him to experiment with different techniques and work with various workshops and industries in the country. Thus, “Balance” is a sample of the capacity of the Mexican industry as well as a portfolio of Joel’s own work as a designer.

To witness how one of our designs is manufactured in NOUVEL Studio is quite the experience. To make a single piece of blown glass, it is necessary the ability of several specialists, sometimes three, another six. However, everyone has a specific task: who removes the red-hot glass from the oven, who blows through the metal cane to mold the material, who heats up the piece with the blowtorch so that it does not cool down, who cuts the surplus, who manipulates the mold, who directs everything inside the workshop. For us, every time we make new designs with them, it means participating with that initial idea that is being shaped by all the hands that contribute in the process.

About Joel Escalona Visit Showroom →

Pragmatic, humorous and poetic, are words that best describe Joel’s work. As one of the most prolific designers of his generation, Joel’s work translates to much more than an extensive portfolio; it’s the materialization of his understanding of the culture around him, resulting in projects with a relevant discourse and that are a reflection of himself. Joel finds inspiration in the present. His work is a clear reflection of the events and culture surrounding him: his industrial design projects present a clear solution to current relevant problems, his furniture is designed with contemporary spaces and people in mind, and his personal editions project is an intimate reflection of how his mind works.
