Norte is a minimalist furniture series designed by Mexico City-based designer Dear Durango. Norte marks the first series of work from Dear Durango; it is inspired in the collective imaginary of Northern Mexico and its natural heritage. The project arises from the passion to manifest Mexico’s cultural identity through re-interpreting its utilitarian objects with an artisanal value. The collection promotes the use of local woods and approaches leather recycling from livestock in a responsible manner. Norte seeks to establish a relationship between regional identity and new design expressions through the new techniques, materials and aesthetics that intervene in the creation of each object.
