About The Designer
LAGOS DEL MUNDO is a design collective founded two friends Leonel López Castillo and Rigel Durán. The two designers were interested in creating a collection of homeware that would combine traditional Mexican craftsmanship, with minimal and functional design. As a result, they created a collection of beautifully crafted objects in collaboration with artisans around the country. Each object is inspired by traditional and local design but infused with the essential and functional contemporary aesthetic that guides the designers’ vision.
About The Technique
Glassblowing is used in Mexico by artisans to produce icon drinkware using recycled glass. Once the glass is cleaned and fused, the master glassblowers start the magical process of transforming a formless blob of molten glass into a beautiful object. Using traditional glassmaking techniques, each piece is mouth-blown using a blowing pipe and finished carefully.
