A design studio based in Monterrey specialized in materials, product and strategy development.
The studio started in 2013 in Monterrey Mexico, when a group of Industrial Designers inspired by technology, science & the near future decided to build the company of their dreams. Considering the philosophy of collaborative studios through history, such as The Bauhaus & The Andy Warhol Factory, plus the working culture & business growth of IDEO, Google and Netflix an idea happened:
" Let's build a world where people want to live in through strategic design solutions. "
C37 is created to promote horizontal growth between the creative community and the science ecosystem by providing integral services of material, product and strategy development, along with a working culture based on collaboration.
The team is made of people with different profiles, key partners in areas of technology and manufacturing, and collaborators that help the studio evolve.
C37 Material Lab started with the intention of creating new possibilities of materials for designers and architects. The services provided in the lab are material development, comercialization of MAGMA and product development.
Being design driven, the material lab provides services that are high quality and unique, focused on reducing production errors and ensures precise detailing & professional quality.
The laboratory is operated by experts on fields of industrial design, engineering and materials. It focuses on researching, experimenting and testing to produce high quality materials to provide new possibilities for designers and architects.
THE NEW liquid VOLCANIC STONE
MAGMA is the material number 4 of the material library of C37, a liquid stone-like material for designers, artists and architects to open their possibilities when designing.
MAGMA is the first material developed by C37, a liquid volcanic stone that can be casted into any shape. This new material imitates volcanic stone in appearance & texture, but its process of obtaining and transforming as well as its physical and chemical characteristics, allows new applications.
The formula is conceived in a liquid state and transformed into a solid state by casting, allowing designers to create organic forms made out of a mold, or even create intersected plane designs by cutting them from a sheet (like if it was wood). The advantage of MAGMA is that it’s color, texture and porosity is the same as the volcanic stone. However, it’s 20% lighter, it’s less expensive and it can reach lower thickness without breaking. The main features of this new material include malleability, lightness, resistance, and it’s ability to connect with other materials.
With MAGMA, designers can choose the color and texture, resulting in a personalized material for developing unique products.
WE CREATE POSSIBILITIES FOR THE FUTURE.
we are inspired by people
