DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Agaves de Mexico

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bottling

INSPIRATION:
Mexico is the source of inspiration. Agaves de Mexico is an exersise of pride, to honor the cultural diversity, the richness of the soil and strength of its traditions. In four bottles, it gathers more than two thousand years of history, recounting the customs of the people who inhabited these lands. Four spirits distilled from the agave, were chosen to reflect an entire country. Sotol is the taste of the North, Mezcal depics the Southern lore, Sisal is the style of the Eastern culture and Tequila has its appellation of origin in the West.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Agaves de Mexico is different from any other product, because the exercise itself is an act of rebellion. There is a lot of regionalism regarding agave drinks, although they are distilled from the same plant (but different species), no one has ever dare before to put them together. It is, an inconceivable act in Mexico, that unifies the whole country into one sole story. It is also, a result of a work that makes the millennial cult of distilling agave and the recognized fine art of smelting silver, merge into a collector's item.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
"Agaves de Mexico" is a cultural and creative exercise, it is the result of the harmonious interaction between design, engineering, craftsmanship, agriculture and history: It is an invitation to the sophisticated art of tasting, enabling to taste 4 different drinks in a comparative way or to enjoy them individually. Its silver and bottle design makes it a collector's item that assures maintain its value forever.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The conceptual project began in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, in April 2014. The metalwork is done in the city of Torreon, Coahuila, same place where the mine from which we extract the silver for this project is located. The bottles are blown in the State of Mexico, and sandblasted finishing is made in Guadalajara, where all the integration is also made.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Penoles Silver, of Mexican origin, is among the best in the world. Along with the exquisite metalwork, they complement each other for this collection. Pieces are casted in this precious metal, carved to show the differences between each bottle. In the center, it has a silver cup shaped as the Agave s Heart, which perfectly fits into the bottle. Each bottle is glass blowed, and has handcrafed sandblast carved labels, finished in gold or silver, depending on the market to which it is addressed.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
With 160 mm x depth 160mm X High 187 mm (diameter 160mm X High 187 mm)

TAGS:
Mexican desing, diseno mexicano, tequila, plata, silver, luxury, sotol, sisal, henequen, mezcal, bebidas de lujo

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Design, culture and logistics are common points in this project. We investigated regulations for export and import of alcoholic beverages in the target countries. It is the fact that they are separate bottles, which allows us to do different processes simultaneously. Besides, the fact of having handcrafted finishing, favors the possibility of adapting to the target customer needs, which we understood by meeting with distributors, and identifying areas of opportunity, to reach the final proposal.

CHALLENGE:
To find the way of showing different drinks but only one product, develop With both, a very Mexican and yet contemporary aesthetic, to evidence the varieties of the Agave plants and distillates, and by communicating a specific conceptual idea: wealth, natural and cultural diversity of Mexico. All fitting to the regulations of the countries of origin and destination, including logistical and security implications and management of precious metals.

NAME:
Estudio Volador

PROFILE:
We built a studio that could fly, where we could observe the world from every angle and see it beyond. We understood that we needed to perceive and question everything. We allow us to go to places where irreverence is welcome and explode ideas surprisingly, to enter and share. We learned to communicate our ideas by flying, we learned to land, and to treat others dreams with care. We became experts in creating new and extraordinary things. We get to know those that allow us to enter their world until we make sure we really KNOW them. Then we change their environment. That is our task. We create experiences, we open perspectives and we change patterns. Sometimes we get to the point by distorting reality, by shaping it previously with unheard ideas. The concepts, the products, the images, the experiences and the solutions that convey specific messages are developed by us to connect the senses and the dots that our clients give us. It was that day, when we took the task of altering things and we concluded that the only way to live in a place that we dream is to create it ourselves. That’s how our studio was born.
