Entry Description

“Our intent is that those who visit, will sense the rare ancient timelessness of nature and uniqueness of this place.” - Rick Joy

We worked in close collaboration with the Architect and team to provide high quality lighting solutions for the resort and to complete a cohesive atmosphere, by taking advantage of Mexico’s rich and diverse culture of making. We designed a series of custom pieces for this hospitality project conceptualized as a “family” of fixtures and furniture in order to create a cohesive identity in tune with the place. The suites are lit with low light mingling with and sitting within the landscape; general illumination is sparse and functional balanced with plug-in lamps ensuring ambiance and mood creating illumination at a low height close to the human and end-user.
