About Armando Mora Medina : Armando Mora Medina is a Designer pursuing an MFA in Furniture Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He believes that furniture must have a fascinating conversation and interaction with its users. Born in Mexico, he earned a BFA in Architecture at the ITESM Campus Guadalajara and did an Erasmus program at the ETSAB in Barcelona. Following his studies, he co-founded a local architecture firm in his native city where he learned how to lead and manage responsibilities. Years later, he received a furniture design certificate at FIDI in Florence, which made him understand he had a big passion as a designer expanding his capabilities beyond architecture. Thus, he continued his path by leaving the firm he co-founded and started working for the renowned company AHA Universo in the areas of architecture, product, and furniture design. Due to the learning and professional path he's been through, he has explored the interaction between architecture, furniture, and humans and developed a playfully innovative design approach combined with exceptional craftsmanship skills.
STATEMENT OF ART:
My designs represent the moments in which our uninhibited curiosity wakes up playfully. They challenge the way conventional furniture pieces are designed by giving them personality and an innovative approach of interacting with them.
