EWE is a design studio based in Mexico City, devoted to the preservation and advancement of Mexico’s rich artisan heritage, while embracing new mediums and languages for the execution of limited-edition sculptural and functional objects. With a desire to reflect tradition as part of the natural flow of design, EWE praises diverse techniques, blends primitive roughness with pristine surfaces, and uses natural empathic materials that appeal to the senses. Mexican history is EWE’s inspiration for forging new ideas that have substance and meaning.
EWE Studio was founded in 2017 by gallerist and curator Age Salajõe, and designers Manuel Bañó and Héctor Esrawe.
EWE shows with Oliver Gustav in Denmark, with Galerie Half and The Future Perfect in United States, with Objective Gallery in China, with Collectional Gallery in United Arab Emirates, with Kolkhoze in France, and with MASA Galeria in Mexico.
