About the designer


AYRES MX

We are Joana Valdez, Industrial designer from Yucatán, México and Karim Molina, Textile designer from Caracas, Venezuela. We design utility and simple objects with a primary aesthetic. Our basic shapes are unique, remembering prehistoric utensils. Inspired by our historical, natural and primitive roots, we highlight the beauty of the materials, design and quality. We work with natural materials like Guayacán and Tzalam woods, lava rocks and natural leathers. Our processes are completely handmade allowing each object be a unique piece, love to always explore new tecniques and materials. We work our designs in several states in México, one in Yucatán, where we produce wood designs. We seek to establish fair terms of trade with artisans and that can allow us to offer objects 100% handmade with high quality materials and the most beautiful hand craft work. Our philosophy is that all we deserve special objects that tell a story and a purpose within our spaces, that is why we personally seek the materials and the artisans we work with, these gives a sentimental and totally intimate side to each of our designs. We design and create simple handmade objects with the finest materials and a great story behind, proposing a simple, natural and personal life.    

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
