Tempo: Conscious Design by Jorge Diego Etienne

In Architecture & Design by Ali MadrazoLeave a Comment

As you well know, one of our favorite creatives is Jorge Diego Etienne and his studio, since they are not only magnificent professionals, but they are also highly aware of both the environment and their society, so they constantly get involved in projects that contribute to a common good beyond aesthetics.

This time the Mexican designer presents Tempo, a collaboration with a social cause to support Fábrica Social de Techo A.C., an initiative in Latin America dedicated to the manufacture of emergency housing in marginalized communities. The collection consists of 10 pieces made mostly from the remaining material from the emergency housing manufacturing, seeking to take advantage of the workshop’s raw material and exploring its ability to create objects that last through time. The construction of each piece is consistent with the processes and handling of the wood used by Techo, with a language very faithful to the material in its aesthetic and structural characteristics. A constant in the collection is the open and legible design, with great attention to the details of each joint that denote the expert craftsmanship and experience of the workshop and its collaborators. The pieces that make up the collection are versatile and can be used in different spaces; they are discreet and serene, giving serenity to the rooms they occupy.

Through the manufacture and sale of this furniture, investment will be generated in the different programs of the association, taking advantage of the resources that they already have in the factory, adapting and creating various solutions and services in wood.

These types of projects, so complete and with objectives so well reflected in each area, are those of which we are most proud of. Congratulations to Jorge Diego Etienne and his great team who we hope will inspire other designers with their conscious vision.
