Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

With the aim of bringing together disciplines that naturally dialogue, the Mexican Museum of Popular Art (Museo de Arte Popular) organized the Biennial "Arte / sano ÷ artistas 5.0", where a master craftsman added his techniques and experience to the clever creativity of contemporary aesthetics.

In the hands of the master craftsman Gonzalo Rodríguez, we worked towards a discursive synergy, between mastery in the artisan technique and modern and global aesthetics, that resulted in Intersección, an avant-garde craft.

Hands that weave an avant-garde speech, with continuous lines where techniques, experiences and different visions are intercepted, Intersección is a piece that tells its own story: of its creation and its motives; the perfect combination that, like a dance, has rhythm, coherence and balance.

Working with clients in the United States, Mexico, Europe and Asia, Joel has positioned himself as one of the most influential designers on the Mexican scene due to his broad-spectrum projects: those that address an Industrial need, propose an innovative solution and have had massive commercial success; and others with high conceptual content granting great artistic value. Balance is the conjunction of these two aspects of the designer's work.

All of our products can be modified to fit any kind of project. Get in touch with us to discuss all the possibilities.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Mexico City

Based in: Mexico City

Mexican designer Joel Escalona was born in Mexico City in 1986, and holds an Industrial Design degree from UAM-A. In 2014 he founded his own design studio in Mexico City, which he still runs.

Pragmatic, humorous and poetic, are words that best describe Joel’s work. He believes in ideas that engage meaningfully, that push the limits of contemporary design, that have the ability of pulling people into the stories they shelter. From everyday products like faucets and pans, to extravagant limited-edition pieces and creative direction projects, Joel generates tangible value for each of his clients through his execution and narrative mastery.

Joel’s work has been exhibited in the mayor design events around the world like Maison & Objet Paris, Salone Internazionale del Mobile Di Milano, Design Miami/Basel, ZⓢONAMACO in Mexico City, among others. Throughout the years his work has also been featured in the most prestigious design publications and books, generating editorial value for his clients, projects and collaborators.

In addition to running his own design studio, Joel is the creative director of two internationally known contemporary furniture companies: nono and BREUER. He’s also founding member of Cooperativa Panorámica, a group of Mexican designers exploring new design territories. All of this while also teaching at CENTRO and ITESM, two of the most important design universities in Mexico, and is a frequent guest lecturer at different universities and events.
