ESTUDIO POMELO

Since 2005

Estudio Pomelo is a Mexican office of architecture and design, which develops utilitarian objects in collaboration with artisans, using traditional techniques, with the dual purpose of offering current pieces and helping to strengthen the continuity of trades.

MATERIALS

We manufacture wool rugs in Oaxaca; copper objects and cotton fabrics in Michoacán; wooden, glass and carved stone objects in Jalisco.

INSPIRATION

Collaborating with families of artisans, we have sought to make objects with a current language, using simple gestures, without conceptual, formal or technological searches, so that they can be integrated into the uses and urban environments with naturalness, that contribute quality to the space and that survive the pass of the time.


We experiment with the possibilities of traditional techniques, to translate their ancestral languages into the present, seeking originality by connecting the new uses with the origin, hoping to collaborate in something to keep the traditional techniques alive (and fresh), and thereby encourage permanence of local identities.
