Studio Cardinal is project that constantly evolves. It tells stories generated through the collaboration between heterogeneous work teams, experimentation with materials and audacious techniques of creation. It generates objects with an aesthetic proposal in response to the essential guidelines of their duties, which purely contextual ornamentation allows it to dialogue with the user and the environment in a contemporary language with classic accents.
The word "cardinal" refers to the essential, transcendental and vital as well as of a direction and starting point, while "studio" alludes to a creative working space. These way, the duality of concepts join to enshrine free and pure design.
Studio Cardinal was founded in 2013 by designers Maria Valdespín and Gerardo Zaldivar, who met in 2006. Since then, they have been collaborating on various projects that range from strategic design, product design to interior design.
