a collaboration between mexico-based firm rojkind arquitectos and design workshop esrawe studio, construction for
the ‘tori-tori restaurant’ in polanco near mexico city is now complete. emerging from the ground like climbing ivy,
the CNC routed facade appears to waver and curve. subtly different, the two layers of self-supporting steel were precisely
handcrafted and finished to generate the dynamic effect. the outdoor terrace allows guests to eat or drink amongst natural vegetation
while the furniture has been specifically developed for a comfortable dining experience. a complete collection of tables and chairs
were created to enhance each interior area connecting the atmosphere and function.

in reference to the digital design and fabrication methods, michel rojkind, founding partner of rojkind arquitectos, has stated:

‘at rojkind arquitectos we are very rigorous about experimenting with digital design as well as getting things built.

that’s why we have specially focused on how to translate complex geometries into very simple and
understandable drawings
that benefit from local manufacturing, as is the case of working in mexico city.’

‘we seek in the project a chance for the users to link with the different ambiances and choose their favorites.
each space’s materials, setup and characteristics towards the furniture generate a wide spectrum of options
and
sensations for its assiduous clients.’
– héctor esrawe, principal of esrawe studio
