"We value the experimentation, the reformation of the message, and the smart incentives.

We believe in the atypical, and in the principle that says that form follows function.

We celebrate clear messages and intelligent contents.

We are an Independent Design Studio.” — Manifiesto Futura

BRUTO

image

"Wallpaper* magazine invited us to collaborate in a project that would be exposed during design week in Milan. The task was to create 5 food items that were focused around one particular ingredient, also the branding and packaging.

We worked with Alfredo Villanueva, choosing “chili” as our main ingredient, so we could stand out our culture bringing the name of “Mexico” to an international exhibition not only by design but also by it’s gastronomy.

In a world where everything screams, everything is flashy, BRUTO remains an outsider, confirming that what is well made can get along with simplicity. What is startling is not necessarily noisy.”

MUTUO

image

"Mutuo, two architects proposing solutions that represent an ode to the experimentation. Taking advantage of their different roots, they create new experiences through chaos.

This project allowed us to came out with a particular solution: An identity with no logo, that relies in other resources to accomplish the characteristics of recognition and constancy that branding requires.”

Bennett is an illustrator and designer who spends most of his days glued to old science fiction fantasy films and Saturday morning cartoons. This fascination with the imaginatively absurd has formed a surprisingly stable connection with the way his mind imagines the constraints of the physical form, or lack thereof.

Utilizing traditional oil media on natural wooden surfaces, Bennett is heavily inspired by the sharp dualities observed in his world’s natural and cultural ecosystems. His work is partly influenced by the precise forms and soft palettes of the Baroque masters, and the bold geometric intensity of the Russian Avant-Garde and Futurism movements. This dichotomy of contrasting artistic disciplines and influences lends itself to the underlying dualities observed in his work.”

"Design and Illustration studio established in London in 2002 and now based in New York City." — Vault49

"Silk screen promo/tutorial made for the Beyond Art festival in Seoul, Korea, where Vault49 painted a 1000sq ft mural and hosted a silk screen workshop.”

"We’ve kept this labour of love under wraps for the most part but are stoked to finally be able to share it. We initially came up with this idea upon celebrating Vault’s ten year milestone. If not for our unhealthy obsession of setting ourself targets and putting (almost) everything on the line to achieve them, we doubt we’d still be around today surrounded by a great team and a body of work we’re all proud to be associated with. Using that as inspiration and our love for type, we came up with a series of posters from 0-9, one of each of our 10 years."

"Hinterland creates unique work for people to use, enjoy and cherish. We are artists, woodworkers and craftspeople who build by hand using natural materials. Drawing on fifteen years’ experience, we believe in and stand behind our techniques, designs and finished products.

To us, materials are at the heart of what we make. They provide the initial inspiration for the design, and also provide the user with an innate and ongoing connection to the natural world. We care about where we source, prizing salvaged, found and local materials, along with recycled and eco products. And we care about how we treat those materials through the building process.

Everything we build has a story. It starts with the materials, is shaped by the design and build, then develops through the many hands that use it throughout its lifetime.” — Hinterland Design

SCATTER/GATHER PENDANT LIGHT

image

"This pendant gets its name from its materials: wooden branches scattered far and wide along the rugged Pacific shoreline, that are gathered up. Hand-constructed using pegged and glued through-tenons, no fasteners detract from the abstract and natural beauty of each unique fixture."

MATERIALS | Found ocean-washed branches, black or white cloth-covered twisted electrical wire, medium-base porcelain lamp socket

LITTLE GEM

image

"A side table and sculpture for indoors or out, it’s made from cast-off cedar logs given second life as a crystalline form. It’s hand-shaped and faceted based on the different characteristics of each log, and variations in wood grain, top surface and finish further ensure that no two are alike. Left to weather outdoors, this piece will acquire a natural silver finish."

MATERIALS | Western red cedar

NURSELOG

"These dual-purpose side tables bring the outdoors to the indoors. Mimicking rain forest stumps that grow mosses and ferns from their tops, a round insert allows a small arrangement of plants to add a living element to a useful surface. No two are alike."

MATERIALS | Western red cedar

TREETOP DINING TABLE

image

"Inspired by the sentinels of the forest, these salvaged and dried hardwood logs from coastal B.C. create unique, tree-like table legs that only reveal their modernist leanings at the chamfered intersection with the table’s top surface. This knockdown table flatpacks, and is easily assembled."

MATERIALS | Salvaged hardwood legs FSC-certified hardwood top
