Tambor is designed by one of the most prominent architects in Mexico, Habitación 116.
The multidisciplinary interior architecture studio presents the piece as part of the series of works called “Lava”.
The entire Tambor series is inspired by “El Pedregal” neighborhood in Mexico City, a volcanic stone landscape area.
“El Pedregal” is a direct reflection of the Mexican modernism for the 50 ́s and 60 ́s and it takes its “color theory” from the colors of the Mexican altiplano and the volcanic rocks.
Rooted in constant historic and conceptual research, the pieces in Habitación 116 narrate a sensitive consistency of a contemporary Mexican aesthetic and promotes the Mexican design legacy paired with the careful hand of local craftsmen and a detailed study of functionality.
