C37 helped Tec de Monterrey represent the power and importance of women in the industry by creating the presea, Mulier Amet, award for Mujer Tec.

an innovative material THAT DEFy THE status quo.

Magma® The new liquid stone

This unique material looks and feels similar to basalt stone, but with new and unique properties. It is made of two-thirds natural minerals and a low percentage of high-resistance polymers. This composition gives Magma® a number of exclusive features: it is highly resistant, lightweight and beautiful. The formula is conceived in a semi-liquid state allowing the material to be casted in a mold to create complex, precise and fast production products impossible to achieve in stone. After casted you can cut it, perforate it and engrave, similar to wood.

DIVERSITY DRIVEN.

Mujer tec - tec de monterrec 

To recognize the trajectory of women in the industry during the International Women's Day, Tecnológico de Monterrey rewards the achievements of women in the institution by The Women's Tec Award. The project is led by the Department of Women and Business which supports the professional development of women through information about organizations and institutions that help them plan and carry out their professional, personal and family careers.

It is the opportunity to distinguish the contributions of women from the Tec Community, their professionalism and passion for what they do, which make them an example of leadership

MULIER AMET.

inspired by womEn.

Mulier Amet, Latin for Challenging Woman, is the name of the 2018 award, coordinated by the Humanities area of the ITESM university, designed by C37. In this edition commemorating innovative women through their new formula Magma ®: The new liquid stone.

Aiming to design a piece that celebrate women in the institution, Mulier Amet is a sculpture that represents women as a catalyst for change. A piece that celebrates them as autonomous and powerful and leaders, with key participation in their community, made with the first material belonging to the library of the studio C37: Magma ®, the new liquid stone.

The design is inspired by "The girl without fear" by Kristen Visbal; A symbol of women's leadership, the challenging and empowering position of the girl is abstracted, translating into an abstract and timeless design. The lines are strong and ascending. 

Mulier Amet is a piece that embodies the power of women. A piece that gives voice, that inspires,
recognizing women and their rights, celebrating the struggle of ancestor women in order to motivate future
generations and their participation in politics, economy and society.

EASY TO REPRODUCE   Unlike stone, Magma® can be casted in a mold to create infinite products in a shorter amount of time (in contrast to the extensive artisanal carving process of the traditional Basaltic stone).
