Estratos solid wood and brass pieces by Hector Esrawe and Emilio Chapela in collaboration with Manuel Bañó. The singular and natural designs on each of the pieces were photographed, digitalized and then traced onto the surface of the wood with a robot. The process was repeated until the pattern was gradually engraved into the wood, following the design of the new photographed section.

Mexico City based design studio Esrawe has created a collection of objects based on found materials from stores and warehouses.

 

 

The bronze and walnut wood Vari lamp by Hector Esrawe in collaboration with Ivan Abreu and Manuel Bañó. The lamp is turned on by manually, and gradually, sliding the wood element over the bronze cylinder.

Says designer Héctor Esrawe, “The process began with selecting the materials to understand and analyze them in their ‘raw’ form. From there, the purpose and potential of each material was defined, looking at whether the material ‘wanted’ to be a lamp, a table, a tray or a candleholder.”

 

Mondai walnut wood and brass side tables by Hector Esrawe, in collaboration with Manuel Bañó, aim to integrate both functionality and expression through the simple geometrical balance of the materials.
