Joel Escalona

Mexico City, Mexico
Design is a statement in itself, thus it should always have a strong voice that is technologically defiant, symbolically challenging and of course effective in functionality. 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 affordable products like faucets and pans, to extravagant furniture pieces and jewelry collections, every project represents well-informed creativity as well as products that people want. Working with clients in Mexico, USA, Italy, France and Spain have led him to aim for a multidisciplinary agency able to provide tangible value to each project, while enjoying a full schematic view of the creative process in many levels and different contexts, enriching his studio's values. His work has been exhibited in the mayor design capitals of the world, such as New York, Paris, Milan, and Mexico City. He was selected to take part in the ICFF Studio exhibition at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York and was invited to represent South America Young Design at the Maison & Objet’s special exhibition Talents À La Carte in Paris, featured in the Salone Internazionale del Mobile Di Milano several times, at ZONA MACO in Mexico City and the exclusive DESIGN MIAMI/ BASEL, among several contemporary design exhibitions.
