Diario by Moisés Hernández
Published on November 13, 2013
Diario, Spanish word for diary and everyday, is a brand that searches, recollects and redesigns unique and everyday objects from the place. Designer Moisés Hernándes comes from Mexico.
Diario is a social, cultural, curatorial and design project of Mexican objects. Moisés Hernándes travels around Mexico looking and understanding the stories behind those objects and at the same time he rediscovers places, people, materials, techniques, textures and colors.
This project started as the master diploma of Moisés Hernández at Ecal in Lausanne, Switzerland and was developed in three different and contrasting towns in Mexico, the curatorial exercise will continue while Diario continues traveling, redesigning and adapting more objects and techniques that are popular among Mexicans.
Fabrics, ceramics and silver give shape to the first collection of Diario that started with an adventure of 40 days in Mexico searching, curating and rediscovering traditional handcraft techniques.
The objects of Diario respect traditions but they are also simplified from their original versions, leaving and exhalting the characteristics that make them Mexicans but in a more contemporary way.
Diario is about tradition, culture, places, people and objects.
