Yolanda Reséndiz Barrón & Jesús Renteria Franco
As they explore new ways of creating objects, Yolanda Reséndiz Barrón and Jesús Renteria Franco, industrial designers, creators of the Tsimani Studio, and Guest Speakers at this year’s Latin American Conference, find that the historical and the traditional are the perfect guidelines for innovation. They believe that to experience Mexico in the most traditional way gives them the necessary inspiration to contribute a fresh and new way to promote the richness of the Mexican visual world. Colors, saturated textures, and recharged forms are the material with which they work.
