Nouvel Studio presents the series "Katsinas" by the Mexican artist Edgar Orlaineta who has done a fantastic reinterpretation of the katsina or kachina in glass, from the Hopi peoples of northeastern Arizona. The mystique of these dolls - formerly employed as a link between immortal beings - has been lost over the years, so Edgar decided to take up the tradition that surrounds them and transform it into beautiful glass sculptures.


Grand Masters Anthology

Nouvel celebrates more than 20 years of collaboration with fantastic creative people presenting the limited edition drinking glasses designed by acclaimed Mexican architects Teodoro González de León, Ricardo Legorreta and Pedro Ramírez Vázquez.

Constantly teaming up for the conception of new projects has been the challenge that has always make us better, mixing our passion for making glass with the passion to create new forms.

Timeless pieces are our goal, always encouraging good design. It is with this anthology that we present a well deserved homage to three great persons whom we have had the honor of working with.


"FICUS B" Jan Hendrix

jan hendrix arte mexicano movil

La colaboración con Jan Hendrix se da a partir de una conjugación de arte y técnica. En esta obra Hendrix traslada su conocida gráfica al vidrio con técnicas de grabado de alta complejidad. El detalle distingue la particularidad de la pieza. Como el artista lo describe .- el vidrio es un material seductor, muy peligroso y por lo mismo difícil de manejar, asi que el reto de hacer algo que supere lo que ya es el vidrio en sus estado natural, resulta complicado.

Es así como nace el set de Floreros "Ficus B" en una conjugación fantástica de arte y técnica.

"XINU" Ignacio Cadena


Inspired by microscopic organic structures of plants that make up the catalog of aromatic botany of America, the collection of glass pieces respond to its own materiality , understand its limits , explores its borders , learn of their condition and each seeks its own form of independently. The creator becomes a viewer who simply guide a process of natural development in a perfect symbiosis between creative decisions and morphological responses given by each of the " bodies of glass " to be molded and placed in the hands of chance , the raw material , technique, craftsmanship talent and wonderful possibility of the unexpected and surprising.

Ignacio Cadena, 2016


Since 2013 collaborating with Monica Guggisberg and Philip Balwin

Monica Guggisberg and Philip Baldwin started collaborating with Nouvel Studio in 2013. The first project " Loon" , captures the curve of a distinct and discreet bird while retaining the functionality of a real and practical vase. The suggestion of movement and clarity of line lend these pieces their original attraction, while implying both grace and motion.

Dermal " Héctor Esrawe

Héctor Esrawe y Manuel Bañó
Vidrio soplado y madera
Exhibiciones: 2014 | Abierto Mexicano de Diseño, Munal
2014 | Zona Maco 2014

A través del vidrio soplado Héctor Esrawe comienza a trasladar el diseño y la fabricación de objetos funcionales a piezas que tienen como principal función su valor simbólico. Dermal es uno de los proyectos que integra la serie host de Nouvel Studio. Esta pieza busca posicionar la materia y la técnica del vidrio soplado como protagonistas de un objeto al lograr conexiones inesperadas entre la pieza y su proceso de fabricación. Se utilizaron herramientas tradicionales en la transformación del vidrio soplado, algunas de madera, que en muchas ocasiones alteran y condicionan la forma de la burbuja de vidrio. En el caso de la Dermal, en alusión a la técnica de implantes subcutáneos en el cuerpo —de ahí su nombre—, las herramientas son incrustadas en el vidrio candente y la huella que dejan se utiliza como receptáculo de elementos de madera que soportan la pieza al mismo tiempo que la alteran, la habitan y la condicionan.
