Leo Capote has been searching for alternative uses for objects that are made for other purposes. Industrialized objects perform specific functions and are designed based on ergonomic principles — they adhere to technological and formal requirements, and are made of various materials, different finishes, and produced by a variety of manufacturing processes.

The idea to work with traditional materials began with a trip to Oaxaca in 2009, where David saw artisans working with “Barro Negro” for the first time. His commitment to the rich heritage and remarkable craftsmanship of Mexican artisans has required a rethinking of traditional processes, challenging the boundaries of culture, product and materials. Combining innovation with a passion for exceptional quality drives the collection.

Ramón Laserna studied Industrial Design, also becoming interested first in photography and then in kinetic art. Deciding to fuse these two disciplines, Laserna has spent the last eight years exploring the possibilities. Working mainly with urban fragments, he is always looking for line and colour, whether abstract or geometric, creating what he calls ensambleges. His work is the perfect marriage of design, photography and kinetism, always involving an optical illusion, which gives movement to the product.
