Description

Digital information fragility leads us to treasure the accessories where we store it. “Levedad” goes back to the time when our data was safe, carved in stone.

The “Levedad” usb, designed by Laura Noriega is hand carved in lava stone by one of the best master craftsmen of Jalisco, Mexico, known for making the typical carved mortar called “molcajete” Its capacity has been developed from our collaboration taking the material to its limit, achieving from the hand carving very thin thicknesses. The result is a design object, a light accessory with a detail in dark wood that softens the texture of the stone.

About the designer


“tributo is an offering to the dynamic processes of exchange between creative human activities. Emphasizing the dialogue process arising from the displacements, we generate traces that result into objects. \" Founded by Laura and Gabriela Noriega in Jalisco, Mexico in 2013, tributo is a multidisciplinary design company merging the work of contemporary designers and traditional producers through the appreciation of cultural heritage and local artisanship. In tributo we aim to promote design as a strategic tool to promote social, economic and cultural development by working with artisan communities in Mexico. With our practice we generate a dialogue through design processes to encourage creativity and share tools that help generate diversification, improve the quality of workshops and production and promote generational continuity. Our main value is handmade and the influence of our heritage in the history of each product bringing together a selection of utilitarian objects for home decoration, accessories and furniture produced by the best Artisan Masters of Mexico. The tributo Collection is a cartography of cultural diversity, craft techniques and materials, merging the creative vision of designers and craftsmen from the states of Jalisco, Michoacán, State of Mexico, Oaxaca, Hidalgo, Veracruz and Nayarit from more than fifteen different techniques such as hammered copper, lava stone and obsidian carving, blown glass, cabinetmakers, basketry, pedal and waist loom, knife makers, pottery, woodcarving among others. As part of tributo´s socio-environmental responsibility two years ago we started to develop our environmental policies and practices. We began measuring our carbon emissions and to design our strategy to neutralize them with the aim to reduce our environmental impact.
