Enikós is a series of objects that pride our individuality through the use of unique materials and processes.

Colección Enikós_Artelinea.jpg

We are unique entities in a world that disavows us, unrepeatable and uneven beings. Under this premise the Enikós (from Greek, singular) collection was born: a set of objects that seek to raise individuality through the use of materials and processes that generate one-of-a-king pieces. We live in a world that forces us to fit in in a certain category, as we set aside our individuality, forgetting our origins and our uniqueness. Metaphorizing this idea is how the Enikós collection was born, taking pride in our individual beauty. The objects that constitute this collection aim to generate contemplation, appreciation and interaction rituals, generating positive changes on the ambience.


The conceptual background was combined by overlapping circles, making the conceptual development easier to translate, conceiving interesting patterns that were later translated into a tridimensional plane. For this first stage, four collectible design objects were designed: two side tables in different heights and two decorative center pieces with lazy susan mechanisms. The collection aims to be expanded to other typologies, such as vases and lamps, that were developed in a conceptual stage.


The use of materials played an important role in the conceptual development of the collection. Using materials that have unique properties per se made the objects have a deeper level of uniqueness, such as tezontle, a volcanic rock used mainly for construction,

and white oak, a beautiful wood that allows it to be easily carved, having beautiful grains. The use of unique materials was combined by priding Mexican craft collaborating with craftsmen specialized in the materials gave as a result pieces that enhance the materials’ properties.


Enikós was designed for Artelina, a Mexican luxury design brand that collaborates with Mexican designers focusing on the use of local materials and processes.
