Akin to the corn that requires an artful removal of its leaves so as to reach the cob, Xipe Tótec signifies for ancient Mexicas “that which is lived on the inside, what inhabits the skin”. It’s the spirit of the grains of corn and the regrowth of the camp. Xipe Tótec speaks about Mexican cuisine tradition, through rituals and respect for the spirit of the food.
Xipe Tótec collection was created using 3D casted moulds blended with decades of craftsmanship experience originating from Oaxaca state in Mexico. All of the pieces are made with a natural "engobe" finish to give them a unique lustrous texture that is both functional and beautiful.

Platalea studio was born out of a passion for both art and design. We love how both are so intrinsically intertwined in ways that are often too subtle to surmise in our everyday routines. Our goal is to provide a voice for those who are often marginalized or hidden in the shadows. We do this by representing our ideologies through our designs, the materials we pick and the people we choose to build them.
At Platalea, we have composed and exhibited varied collections that range from unique exhibition pieces to dinnerware, rugs, benches, stools and light fixtures. Each piece belongs to a collection that was carefully fleshed out by our artists and designers to give them a fascinating story brimming with history and intent.
