Description

Stone carving was one of the greatest artistic expressions of the ancients Mayans. Using representative Yucatan stones such as conchuela, ticul, and Mayan cream, Taller Maya’s craft-masters elaborated this piece in collaboration with designer Xavier Lorand. The Uxmal stool carries the wisdom and talent of Mayan culture and reflects its relevance in contemporary design. The Uxmal Stool is one of the results of the Visión y Tradición residence program led by Design Week México and México Territorio Creativo.

About the designer


Taller Maya

History and culture have their place in the present.

Taller Maya is a Mexican collective design brand made up by a multidisciplinary creative team that collaborates with artisan social companies established in the Yucatan Peninsula, working for the promotion and development of the Mayan culture. 

We are a platform for social and economic development, which is why we work together with artisan social companies to strengthen formal value chains and to generate sustainable sources of income for the rural Mayan communities of the Yucatan Peninsula, all of these through the creation and commercialization of artisan pieces with historical and cultural value.

 

In Taller Maya we work to integrate and generate access to the global market for artisan social companies under fair trade conditions, and for the recognition of the importance of the Mayan culture.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
