FOLLOWING THE TIDE
This collection is inspired by the lagoons and cenotes in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico: the movement of the tide and the change in topography reveal different materials shaping the intersection of earth and water. "Following the Tide" is an explosion erupted from the circular nucleus, dispersed into crushed Forest Green marble and aggregates of recuperated brass. It is composed in a pigmented resin on an oxidized bronze base.

In the midst of the jungle of Quintana Roo in Mexico, we collaborated with Roth Architects for Azulik to design the luminous environment, layout and products for the museum, hotel, restaurant and bar. The designs are inspired by the surrounding nature and embraced recycled raw materials found locally such as macrame, bejucco, ceramic, precious stones, resin, and recuperated glass, guiding furthermore the designs during the process. Executed by local craftsmen and young talented artists, the project evokes mysticism and wonder, a harmonious sensation while strolling in the jungle.
