Artefactos is a collection of craft-manufactured cookware that honors traditional Meso-American typologies and the art of tortilla making.
Project: The Goodspace Project: Artefactos
Date: Spring 2019
Studio: Product Design 8
This project started with the curiosity for natural materials used for; smashing, preping, serving and eating quality food. I researched different manufacturing tecniques, food recepies, material design and global-cultures. I found the stories, craft and hardworking people afterhours in the Los Angeles food scene inspiring. This project also evolved into a kitchenware typology that nods at ancient artifacts and the monolithic beauty of Pre-columbian architecture as archetypes.
Wood, stone and metal were amongst the first to be considered for their imperfect and natural qualities.
