Studio David Pompa is nowadays a young interdisciplinary design studio based in Mexico and Austria. The team has worked worthily in creating products that express and praise the Mexican culture at the time they develop their passion. The combination between tradition and innovation has turned to be their best ally. The reinvention of Mexican crafts is the concept for all of their collections. David has found a surprising magic when combining traditional materials with new techniques and ideas. Take a look below at some of the creative pieces.
