Product design commission.
In order to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Peñoles the largest silver producer in the world in collaboration with the MUMEDI the Mexican Design Museum, Joel Escalona was commissioned a long with more designers and artisans to create everyday extraordinary objects made out of silver .999
The main brief was to exalt the material properties beyond its appealing looks, so Joel Escalona designed an eyelash curler call Bright Eyes that also can be use as jewelry.
— Once we understand the material we can make it even more beautiful by being useful — Joel Escalona.
The concept behind this eyelash curler is encouraged by the common trick to curl eyelashes with a warm spoon and by taking advantage of the excellent silver properties to store and transmit energy, this eyelash curlier just needs to be rubbed with the fingertips to transmit the heat from the hand and then press it with the thumb towards the eyelash in order to enjoy attractive eyes.
The Bright Eyes eyelash curler will be produced in an edition of ten in Taxco Guerro, the first one was exhibited at the MUMEDI.
