VÉRTICE, a project developed by TECNOTABLA, invited us to collaborate in this year’s edition in which we designed an installation that revolves around the idea of perception, while also showing the material’s benefits.

The installation will be presented at this year’s edition of Abierto Mexicano de Diseño, among four other pieces designed by some of the most talented design studios in México.

Take a look at the project’s teaser on this video

Joel Escalona Studio in Milan 2019

As every year this April Salone Internazionale del Mobile took place in Milan, the largest and most important furniture and design fair in the world, ever since its first edition in 1961 the fair has been shaping the history of design and displaying top-notch and innovative products from all over the world.


For this year’s 58th edition, a special edition of Balance was exhibited by Opinion Ciatti, one of the leading Italian design companies known for its luxurious handmade products, continuing our long collaboration with the Italian brand which began back in 2012.

Balance is part of Joel’s Personal Edition series, a design that challenges the laws of equilibrium and that shows, in each composition, the balance between the technique, the people and the ideas that inspire us.

Alongside Balance, our design Canotier was presented by Roche Bobois, the renowned French furniture company.

Canotier is a table designed to highlight the delicate smoothness of every surface, the exquisite turn at the border of the tabletop and how everything is perfectly aligned to provide a subtle equilibrium.

What Design Can Do

What Design Can Do is an international platform that believes in the power of design and creativity to transform society. This edition will be held for the first time in Mexico, here Miguel Melgarejo, director of innovation at Cirklo, and Joel Escalona will host a breakout session about how design can impact business, society and the environment.

Joel and Miguel will share local insights about how design really works out (or not) through their experience working in Mexico and applying design to generate value. 

The breakout session will also be open for a couple of local projects to share how they are using design to generate value and receive feedback from the hosts and the audience. Through this exercise different perspectives on the real use of impactful design will be shared and discussed.
