EWE revisited Mexico’s artisan ancestral background, but this time shifting focus to the evolving techniques the artisans have mastered over many centuries. Disciplines from different artisan workshops were combined in order to transform raw materials into unique limited edition pieces.
The Alquimia collection comprises of three functional and sculptural objects; Ceniza Chair, Humo Table and Magma Light. The element of fire has played a significant role in the transformation of all three pieces. It altered and changed the characteristics of the materials involved – wood, steel and glass – in the manufacturing process, generating fascinating textures and a mesmerizing depth of color.
In this collection, EWE celebrates uncertainty and ambiguity, while trusting an intuition for experimenting with shape, materiality, balance and fire.
