FURNITURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN @estudiopersona based in Los Angeles originally from Uruguay breakthrough project The 2017 Architectural Digest
Design Show in New York. “It was the first show we ever did. It organically got a lot of press, and designers and dealers both started calling us after that.” inspired by Kazuyo Sejima, Eileen Gray, Patricia Urquiola, Faye Toogood and Maria Pergay. clients include Sandra Weingort, J Crew, Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design. currently working on a lighting collection — part of the duo’s Flow collection, which debuted at ICFF earlier this year — made with slump sandblasted opal glass and powder coated aluminum. what’s next? A line of small objects for a pop-up at downtown LA retail space Poketo. they say “Our furniture has been described as ‘sculptural’ and ‘Brutalist’, and perhaps that’s the reflection of the big influence art and architecture has on us.” we say Estudio Persona are reshaping the way we look at South American design by fusing its sculptural playfulness with the warm, functional, contemporary aesthetic of LA.
