When designing, what superpower would you like to have?
We would like to see the future to see what would happen to the products or elements we designed.
Which of your designs would you choose to survive a zombie attack?
Our ME Dinner Set, to be able to carry different things and also do it with style, hahaha. Although being practical, in a Zombie attack the design takes a back seat and what really matters is the function and utility of each object.
If you could go to dinner with a designer, who would you go with?
We would have dinner with Francois Chambard from Estudio UM Project and with Antony and Richard Joseph, from the Joseph & Joshep brand.
Would you prefer to travel to the future or to the past?
We prefer to travel to the future, although with a little fear, but it is interesting to know that it is still before. Although the past is cool!
In what influential period of design would you like to be born?
In the 50s, without a doubt. Shapes, colors, sounds, way of thinking, in short, multiple elements that now seem super eye-catching and interesting.
How would you describe yourself in 3 adjectives?
Persistent, Pet lovers and passionate.
If you wrote a book, what name would you put it?
The truth we would not know what title we would put, but what we do know is that we would not write a single word, it would be a book with blank pages for everyone to draw, color, write, paste, cut etc.
If you could learn to do something new, what would you choose?
Veterinary, to be able to work in zoos, shelters or natural reserves. And how about studying something to be a trainer of pets.
What is the last book you have read?
Give him a Vuelta by J.V Racionero. A small book that we bought in Spain about seeing things from another creative perspective. Interesting, certain things that make you think and it’s fun.
What could we find in your garbage basket?
Packets of snacks, pieces of cardboard, paper, some cable and boxes of light bulbs.
What is the best memory of your childhood?
Kelly lived in a country house and collected wild animals that had been confiscated, so her best memory is to get up very early in the morning with her younger brother, and bring fruits to the monkeys to play with them. Mauricio remembers all the time he spent in the pool of the club to which his family had access, because he loved the trampolines and the slides.
What is the rarest object in your room?
In Mauricio’s room there is a ball the size of the palm of the hand, with an internal bearing that serves to warm the arm before exercising, because before he played a lot of tennis and now it works very well before drawing. Kelly has a giant stuffed animal from the famous Coco bouncer, which, by the way, frightens everyone who enters.
What is your favorite conversation topic?
Always the question that starts every conversation is: What are we going to eat? And from there begin the opinions and memories of different dishes that we have tried. But, from so much thinking and thinking, we always end up eating the same thing because we take a long time to choose and hunger attacks hahaha.
If you could stay your whole life with the same age, what would it be?
We would stay in the 25 years, because it was a year where we did our masters in Barcelona and it was a brutal experience. But more than age would be the situation. Because by age we would stay in the stage of children, between 5-8 years where everything is new and surprising.
What do you value most in the design of a furniture wheel?
That goes according to the general design of the furniture, that is minimal and that does not look like a technical element.
What if you had to design an object to put wheels what would it be?
How about a lamp with wheels, because the only thing that makes it static is its electrical connection, but now there are several options that make it portable.
