Meet Agnes, the Next Big Thing from Central America

Imagine taking a landscape and a civilization and devising an alternative evolutionary path for it — and then creating a collection of furniture based upon that surrogate world. In a nutshell, that's how Guatemala City–based studio Agnes created their newest collection. Designers Estefanía de Ros and Gustavo Quintana spent two years researching pre-Columbian craftsmanship to create the kind of aesthetic that might have emerged had Mayan culture evolved with a bit less Western interference.
