EWE is a Mexico City based design studio founded in 2017 by Spanish designer Manuel Bañó, Estonian-born curator and creative director Age Salajõe and Mexican designer Hector Esrawe. The studio is devoted to the preservation and advancement of Mexico’s rich artisan heritage, dedicated to creating handcrafted limited edition sculptural and functional objects.
With a desire to reflect tradition as part of the natural flow of design, EWE Studio praises diverse techniques, blend primitive roughness with pristine surfaces and use natural empathic materials that appeal to the senses. Mexican history is their inspiration for forging new ideas that have substance and meaning.
Together with the unique skills of each artisan, EWE collaborates to transform glass, wood, metal, textile and stone, among other raw materials, into magnificent and original contemporary pieces of collectible design.
