EWE studio opens its first showroom in a transformed dance hall in mexico city

EWE studio opens its first showroom in a transformed dance hall in mexico city

mexico city based EWE studio joined forces with renowned ESRAWE studio, and transformed an old late 50s dance hall located in the city’s roma norte neighborhood, into a space where the two studios co-exist harmoniously. the 600 sqm warehouse’s stunning wooden trusses were discovered by accident above the dance hall’s low plafond. the industrial aesthetic proved to be ideal for the creative atmosphere that houses both studios and EWE’s newest showroom.

both EWE and ESRAWE decided to strip the space from excess material and expose the beautiful natural structure. the features were hidden beneath the visible old surfaces, resulting in an open space, where wooden beams are exposed and the natural light escapes through the ceiling into the whole building, making it a warm and inspiring space.

besides occasionally collaborating on projects, the two studios have their own separate spaces. the front of the space hosts EWE’s 40 sqm showroom, where the studio showcases its previous collections, as well as techniques, material studies, and process. since its first collection launched in february 2018 at zona maco art fair, EWE studio has been devoted to the preservation and advancement of mexico’s rich artisan heritage throughout new mediums and languages for the execution of limited edition collectible design pieces.

the shelving units at the EWE showroom are made up of a myriad of materials found in their material library. the shelves are made of glass, marbles, stones, woods, ceramics, metals and other organic materials. on them sit mock-ups, scale models of early explorations and upcoming projects, tools, molds, and inspirational objects. 




on the racks stand experimental results and tests of different materials, made in collaborations with a glass factory, nouvel studio, and a ceramics factory, cerámica suro, among other workshops in mexico city. EWE’s universe embraces its research and experimentation process, while working with different materials, techniques, suppliers, and collaborators in mexico.
