Numa for NOUVEL STUDIO

Numa is born from the mind of Joel Escalona as a vase with such an unusual shape that only a high end workshop would be able to manufacture. Elaborated with the purest glass there is, its curves tell the story of an idea and its manufacturing.

Nouvel Studio, working with glass of the highest quality, achieved the peculiar form the design demanded. The company of Mexican origin competes with the big ones in Europe thanks to its expertise blowing glass, that's why Numa, more than a simple object, is 100% Mexican design and innovation.

Joel is the youngest designer that has ever collaborated with Nouvel Studio, that's why Numa is also a meeting point between avant-garde and tradition; its different colors and its opaque finish are only the final detail of a collector's item.
