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 Manuel Bañó, Age Salajõe and Héctor Esrawe. Since then the studio has exhibited at Zona Maco Art Fair, Abierto Mexicano de Diseño with their solo exhibition ´Masa Crítica’, and at MASA Galeria in Mexico City, at Design Miami, Basel, Switzerland, at Objective Gallery in Shanghai, China, and at The Future Perfect and Galerie Half, in the US in New York and LA.
