It gave us a chance to see numerous design studios that we have followed since we first visited 4 years ago. All of them brought high-level projects in term of concept, design, production and social impact. For its first edition in , it featured more than 40 designers showcasing original pieces of contemporary Mexican design.

Gueridon, LLC. After inheriting a carpentry workshop in , the Mexican conceptual artist Diana Quintero Vallejo and the Franco-Moroccan architect Ismael Bachri teamed up to give continuity to the space, establishing a workshop project which combined the best of their tools and individual knowledge. So, shortly after Atelier Nomade was to be born.

Precisely under further raise the standards of quality of work done in Mexico, Nomade Atelier recently presented the Collection The Pavilion is presented by the Mexican trade office ProMexico, promoting and facilitating business exchanges and development of Mexican companies in the U.

Design Culture. The work done in this design workshop located in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City, is defined by the nomadic experience of its members, a sensitivity according to our turbulent times.

Nomade Atelier is not only the name of design projects, it is also a story, about the Franco-Moroccan architect Ismael Bachri Paris, and Mexican visual artist Diana Quintero Vallejo Mexico City, , who met one night in the Mexican capital. She did not speak French or Spanish, but they found a way to communicate. After deciding to start a long distance relationship, both experienced the demands and needs of a life in transit in Mexico and continuous trips to France and vice versa; Suddenly this experience germinated as common practice around the design.

That constant coming and going demanded find new forms of communication. In , when Bachri changed his residence to Mexico City permanently, Quintero inherited a woodshop with tools, machinery and materials: a new creative vein opened to the couple, who moved dynamics and personal philosophy to professional life.

The workshop began without defined goals in a spirit focused on experimentation: build objects and furniture of all kinds for any purpose. This leeway allowed from the start, integrate their work the same on design basic objects like a chair, a lamp or a bed that art installations such as that made for the artist Leslie Garcia for Proyecta Festival International Design Platform and Digital Arts in , in Oaxaca: Pulsum Plantae.

The installation served to support this project, which analyzes empirically the mechanisms that plants use to communicate. Let's go back to the name Nomade Atelier: synthesizes the design idea of the couple; as our way of life, disciplines mutate, and these changes are sighted, according to Nestor Garcia Canclini, in the emergence of concepts that displace other or require reformulate. The design adds some: nomadism and hybridization.

Nomad is that who permanently moves because of the demands of contemporary life or lack of access to their own home. We adapt as individuals but also adapt our environment and at the same time, assume the rapid change as part of our way of life, our identity.

The continuous movement requires lightness and practicality. The mutation of the practices of everyday life results in hybridization, the combination of separate socio-cultural processes that, when mixed, generate new structures, objects and practices, paraphrasing Garcia Canclini in Hybrid Cultures The social dynamic demand spaces and objects that fit this new or not so new type of life.

Nomade Atelier tries to answer these demands through experimentation with materials and concepts. It generates therefore geared to the needs of its customers, ranging from private and commercial projects to museums, stage and artistic installations unique responses. From its offices in Quintana Roo Street in Colonia Roma, the team of architects, artisans and visual artists that make up the study design objects that pose multiple solutions to defined spaces.

With a sharp nod to the essence of the Bauhaus, the team appreciates the craftsmanship. However, these processes -they use only natural materials found in the country or recycled- are printed in the presence of the object. Far from growing accustomed with the "local" or "artisanal" Quintero and Bachri introduce these forms of work with the intention of creating advanced objects and furniture -a certain debt with Scandinavian design- capable of creating comfortable, adaptable and illuminated atmospheres, as they considered it must be a housing space.

It is not only the functionality but the ability to offer beautiful design, adaptable, living spaces, even when it comes to transit points.
