About the Artists

More than six years ago, Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena established their interdisciplinary design firm E+C based in Mexico City. Esrawe is an award-winning industrial designer as well as a celebrated furniture, interior and product designer. Inspired by traditional Latin American design, architecture and folk art, Esrawe’s works are playful, sometimes humorous, and organic. Like Esrawe, Cadena is creative director of his own firm CADENA+ASOC. CONCEPT DESIGN with over 20 years experience. Cadena’s collaborative designs explore the boundaries between art and science. The ability to jump from one discipline to another turns his work into hybrid expressions that nurture one another.
