Forma Rosa Studio is a design studio based in Brooklyn, NYC, co-founded by Maria Teresa Castillo and Santiago Brown. Inspired by technology, art and natural phenomena, Forma Rosa Studio creates limited edition functional pieces that seek to bring us closer to our natural roots. Their practice is defined by a cultural clash between the handmade and the digitally designed, a relationship that also defines the studio’s aesthetic and its vision. Returning to handcraft from a place of technology, the naturally complex shapes are digitally grown by the pair in NYC and handcrafted by artisans in Peru, a place where Maria calls home. They push the unexpected clash between these concepts to sculpt new ways for them to create form, tactile sensations, and to find a newfound intimacy to their objects.
