Awardee Ein und Zwanzig 2021, World´s Finest Design Talents,German Design Council.

I-Mountain is a dripper for pour over coffee extraction methods.
Inspired by Guatemalan mountainous and volcanic coffee plantations, it is casted with a high-performance polished micro-concrete (terrazzo) and aims to enhance the coffee extraction experience of  coffee shops customers.

Project in collaboration  with Icoffee Solutions Guatemala

MOGO & CRETA
Elected pieces for Inédito exhibition from Design Week Mexico, CDMX 2022-2023 

MOGO​

Is a coffee thermos manufactures from a high-performance, food-safe urethane polymer. Its minimalist design with a low center of gravity prevents spills and burns with its "anti-flip" effect, also the desig incorporates an ergonomic finger grip, creating a more user friendly expirience.

CRETA

Is a set of coffee tableware made from the development of a high strength waterproof concrete reinforced with microfibers, contrasting it with local artisans handmade Teak wood pieces. Creta proposes a disruption throught alternaive and sustainable materials.

These projects exemplify the capacity of design to iterate between the materials and processes of modern manufacturing industries and the local artisan skills impacting in both ways and generating product based identity through coffee as a representative crop of Latin America.

VÜ Lamp & MO Lamp
Elected pieces for Inédito exhibition from Design Week Mexico, CDMX 2020-2021 

​VÜ Lamp

As a tribute to active volcanoes in Latin America, Vü is a decorative luminaire with a slim frame of high-performance white micro concrete, hand polished and reinforced with microfibers, incorporating exposed volcanic aggregates in the finish, contrasted with reclaimed Conacaste wood and a warm LED lighting, evoking the luminescence of a crater.

Mo Lamp

It is a pendant luminaire cast in low-density gray micro concrete based on: Crushed waste plastic, cement, sand, air injector & superplasticizer admixtures. Exposing through polishing the colors of the plastic aggregate and contrasted with support of reclaimed conacaste wood lathed by hand. Mo aims to demonstrate how through materials science and the experimentation of their properties is possible to introduce atypical raw materials for design applications.

MOD - Modular 3D printed station (2022)  

 

The spaces we design build behaviors in people.

MOD is a modular proposal for urban furniture manufactured through concrete 3D printing. These modules create alternatives to build public spaces in urban and peri-urban areas of Latin America. Providing communities with the ability to modulate their urban environment based on their needs with high-strength prefabricated designs. This  design can generate a wide variety of spaces,  building cities friendlier cities and more receptive to people.

 

MOD is the tangible result of one of the first concrete 3D printing research projects in the region.

Influunt Chair (2022)  

 

Influunt chair is a piece of outdors long-lasting furniture manufactured by a single perimeter of 3D-printed high-strength concrete. The morphology of this design allows the concrete to receive high loads without steel or fiber reinforcement. 

Also, its low volume allows two people to transport it by hand without heavy machinery.

CinderFit Workout  

In 2021 Movalle was involved as a design consultant in the design process of CinderFit`s workout block, redesigning an existing concept and developing the manufacturing blueprints, also determining pantones and positions of the text in the five blocks.

CinderFit was launched to the market in the U.S in April 2022.

"Inspired by the classic cinder block - the basic building block that has been utilized globally since the late 1800s for the construction of houses, walls, and buildings - CinderFit's patent-pending design allows fitness enthusiasts to do 10x more exercises than a dumbbell or kettlebell, providing unrivaled total body strength and cardio training." - Extracted from CinderFit`s official website.
