KUUN presents a sophisticated selection of design and lifestyle premium objects, designed and handcrafted in Mexico.
KUUN departs from a profound respect for Mexican tradition and culture, in dialogue with contemporary design and architecture.
KUUN shows another, underexposed side of Mexico, far beyond the clichés of tacos, sombreros and mariachis.
Authenticity: each object is designed and made in Mexico. And is an interpretation of traditional materials and artisan techniques.
Aesthetics: every object is a delight to the eye. And carries a silent form of austerity and purity.
Ethics: each product is made with sustainable materials and techniques. The employees work in good conditions against a fair wage.
After years of immersion in the Mexican culture I found it time to unveil the underexposed creative side of Mexico. No stories about mariachi, telenovelas, men with moustaches, tacos, hammocks or all-inclusive beach resorts. But stories about the creative industry in Mexico.
There is coming up a huge generation of driven designers translating a deep respect for authentic materials & techniques into contemporary design objects. These young entrepreneurs are often socially engaged, proud of their rich traditions and happy to create long term and ethical partnerships with local artisans.
The contemporary architecture in combination with this bright natural light and the versatile landscapes throughout the country keep on fascinating me.
KUUN arose from this passion for this other Mexico.
