We worked with our client in a design proposal to upgrade his new home in the heart of Mexico City.
Different types of wood, materials and nature-inspired colors established the core for the design concept making it logical to reuse some of the existing furniture and keeping the layout of the residence but bringing new materials and pieces that unify the design of the house.
Located in the suburbs of Mexico City, Older Night Club is an electronic music club that had the use of RAW materials and an industrial appearance as requirements. Its underground concept was approached with the use of neutral colors, simple forms and strong details. LED technology was applied in lines that cross the space from front to back in order to make it look bigger along with side lights that live-up the place in early hours.Considered the best interior design in its city, Older Night Club presents a combination of elegance and simplicity. Client: José García.
This award-winner dance studio located in Mexico focuses on teaching hip hop to everyone that allows them. For these project, SDC planned to launch their new clothes season on a brand new store located in the studio as well as a new cafeteria that would allow people to be comfortable and have a nice chatting time after classes.
Functionality and simplicity describe this piece that is available in two versions for different placing of working tools. Made out of pine wood and finished with strong varnish. Its interior is presented in two tones, black for the sober taste and red for the outgoing. Depth is 65 cm. Width is customizable just as the integration of an extra shelf to keep the CPU from the floor. The ashtray and glass-holder are optional accesories.
When I was remodelling a home I found an old cabinet and a table with plenty of drawers that were in very good shape. Unfortunately the cabinet was very old and damaged to keep it but since we have to take care of our planet, I decided to give the drawers and the table a new use. This is what a little paint and imagination achieved :)
How many times have we had to decide between two total opposite things that we like? Should I choose this? Should I choose that? We go round and round on which thing would makes us look better or would go better with our room. We even make a list of pros and cons on each of the options and sometimes we talk to our friends to see what they would choose knowing that it does not matter what they say because we would be the ones with the last word.
The story of these chairs was born when I came up to my client with some initial sketches and asked him if he wanted to proceed with a strong, heavy-looking chair design or if he wanted a more organic and elegant chair design. After thinking for a few minutes and looking at me puzzled he said: "I want both." Probably after his answer my face looked more puzzled than his: "How do you mix and match two completely opposite shapes?" my mind said immediately.
The Grayhouse was created as a final project for 3D Modelling course. The correct placement of materials and lighting was a requirement as well as the final rendering to look photorealistic. The harmony of the design was achieved by the combination of an unsaturated color palette and the natural appearance of the material selection.
Software: Modelling in 3DS MAX and retouching in Photoshop.

Who doesn´t remember their fist kiss? or their fist job? or the first time you paid something with your own money? What about the first apartment you had? First times are unforgettable and this is precisely what the objective of this project was. My client wanted to furnish his first apartment with a "cozy-looking" design. He wanted something modern but, as he said, "not too modern because it seems very cold and boring for me".
Straight and strong lines with a light-colored maple wood that would ease the appearance were the solution to this task and I am pretty sure that these first furniture would be in the client´s memory for the rest of his life.
A jump into the future by imagining how an interior design office would look in five years from now. The design was inspired by nature offering a highly-functional environment through spaces that allow for easy communication, boost the user´s creativity and increase focus.
In an attempt to lower their prices, the furniture industry has been creating unreliable disposable products that take no more than a year to be thrown away. The street is one of the first places where all the unwanted pieces go. The consequences are an increasing amount of trash in the landfills and bedbug infestations. For economic reasons, high-end products with Sustainability Certifications are out of the question for the average person.
Based on the Cradle to Cradle framework I would like to propose a home desk that pursues the gold certification in the Cradle to Cradle Principles with special attention on Material Health, Material Reutilization and Social Fairness.
