Mexico-based design studio and showroom Daniel Orozco Estudio rethinks the traditional parameters of furniture design in a new collection. ‘The Original’ presents 20 pieces of furniture, their offbeat silhouettes offering a teasing interpretation of classic design codes.

The new pieces, composed mainly of lamps but also including tables and chairs, examine the importance of light for human beings. The collection marks the continuation of a theme that has long been important to the studio, which also aims to keep environmental impact to a minimum by utilising natural materials.

‘By putting your heart into everything you do, the journey and every moment and process are very enjoyable; you learn a lot and there is something for everyone in this world,’ says Orozco of the meaning behind the new pieces. ‘Let us always continue collaborating as colleagues and creating spectacular places as a community.’

The studio’s collaborative philosophy is encapsulated in the new collection, which brought together artisans, workshop leaders and photographers chosen by Orozco, and is the culmination of a project originally begun with sketches in November 2021.

‘The Original’ collection, available online and at Daniel & Catalina (a store co-curated by the studio, with a showroom in Tulum, Mexico, and boutiques in Miami and New York to be announced), is the first entirely created by Daniel Orozco Studio. The pieces ascribe to an organic ethos established in previous projects, which utilised locally sourced materials such as wood, concrete, seaweed and ceramic for furniture created with local artisans.

The studio, which curates spaces, leads interior design and furniture styling projects, and creates custom-made furniture and accessories, works with different brands around the world. The resulting projects with artists and artisans are sustainably focused, with a particular emphasis on renewable energies. §
