Renowned industrial designer Aurea Sian Ka’an collaborates with master craftsmen trained in traditional techniques in Merida. Embodying a sophisticated interplay between material and form, this collection melds contemporary tableware design with indigenous Mayan aesthetics. The results are sophisticated pieces that bring the natural warmth and energies of exotic wood to our homes.
Certificated as a fair trade venture, Aurea’s collaboration with local artisans is as much an exercise in cross-cultural production as design; the social impact of her work has been extensive in the communities involved.
Crafted from Katalox wood and polished to perfection, these pieces promise to become family heirlooms with proper maintenance. Thanks to the breathable nature of wood, they will change over time and through use.
Treatment with oils (olive, pumpkin, linseed) and waxes (carnauba, beeswax) will prolong the life of these pieces indefinitely.
