This beauty of this simple pendant light can be owed to the Barro Negro, or black clay, from which it was formed. Simultaneously decorative and functional, “Can” combines centuries-old heritage with modern design through an elegant form and a smooth finish.

Each piece is handmade by skilled Mexican artisans from Oaxaca and showcases the many uses of Barro Negro. Studio davidpompa aims to increase the relevance of traditional craftsmanship and create a more professional working environment for local artisans.

About the designer

Studio davidpompa

David Pompa Alarcón 1986 born in Austria, Austrian mother & Mexican father, grows up in Mexico and Austria Studio Founded in 2013 with a showroom and production located in Mexico City We are a team of designers, engineers and makers based in Mexico and Austria. David Pompa grew up in both countries and studied product design in London. Studio davidpompa\'s corporate culture is driven by the love for the work we do. The deep respect for materials and craftsmen drives us as a brand to redefine Mexican craft. The idea to work with Mexican craft started with a trip to Oaxaca in 2009 where David saw artisans work with \"Barro Negro\" for the first time. He started directly working and experimenting the material which leads to his first collection. Since then, we as a Studio, are committed to Mexican culture and find ourselves on a constant journey to create design objects that are both beautifully crafted and accessible. Challenging the boundaries of culture, product and material is essential when taking a new path to do something truly new. We combine traditional materials and crafts with our passion for perfection.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
