mijali posada is a product and furniture designer interested in the contextual understanding to conceive objects that tell a story with a profound focus on their emotionality.
Mijali Posada Polydorides (Mexico, 1997) is a Mexican-Cypriot industrial designer with a bachelor's degree by Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Guadalajara (2016-2020), with product design studies at Politecnico di Milano, in Milán, Italy (2019-2020). He has worked for different design studios such as MUMO Casa in Guadalajara, Francesco Librizzi Studio in Milan and Esrawe Studio in Mexico City, also, he participated in a remote artistic residence with Julia Carrillo. His work has been showcased in different forums, such as Campamento Feria de Diseño, Design Week México, DECODE, Dutch Design Week,and ZsONAMACO Diseño, and has been a finalist in different categories of the Premio A! Diseño in 2020 and 2021. Mijali is also a co-founder of Colectivo Caravana, a design collective made up of four young designers that seek the exchange of knowledge through co-creation of objects with a high intellectual discourse.
He develops his practice as an independent designer, creating product, furniture and lighting pieces. Mijali's practice oscillates on the contextual understanding, for the development of objects that fulfill the goal for which they were conceived, through a strong narrative - almost poetic - on each one of his projects; accompanied with a profound field research to have a better understanding of the context. The designer seeks to portray personal experiences through deep and meaningful concepts that incite the emotionality of objects.
Mijali has been named by Glocal magazine as one of the new design and architecture promises, as well as one of the "29 talents under 30" of 2021 by coolhuntermx. In 2021, his studio was selected by Grupo Salinas de Arte y Cultura to be part of the program "Sueñas, Aprendes y logras en el Arte", a program that boosts studios and craftsmen to improve their design practices with a business focus.
