Don’t be fooled by her young age and sweet demeanor, Mexican designer Ana Jimenez’ is not a newcomer. Her credentials include: A degree in Industrial design from the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, workshops in Lausanne, Switzerland, studies in Florence, Italy and a MA degree in furniture design from the renown Central Saint Martins in London.

Her worldly education has given the Guadalajara-born a new perception of her Mexican heritage. Today’s post presents 5 pieces of her latest collection titled Los Enmascarados (The Masked Ones). These furniture pieces are inspired by Mexican folklore and traditions. The Drunk Lady, the Buffoon, the Old Man, and the Double Standard are all represented. After researching, concepting, and sketching, the final furnishings were cut in a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine for best results.

I’m always amazed by the refreshing results coming out of the mix of tradition, craftsmanship, and contemporary design. I want one of these!
