About

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mexico City, 1987.

 

Product designer based in Mexico City. He works in the realms of design research and creative direction.

 

His work addresses contemporary issues through the scope of design-related disciplines as interpretation bridges between culture and technology. Up to now, he has explored such schemes with the study of low-tech systems and the traditional crafts sector, with a particular yet challenging focus on transcultural collaborative practices.
