Forma Rosa Studio is a Design Studio, based in Brooklyn New York, co-founded by Maria Teresa Castillo and Santiago Braby Brown. The studio focuses on the digital design and sourcing of limited edition, hand crafted objects for you and your home. These functional artworks draw heavily on natural phenomena, as the studio co-founders find inspiration in the environments that they grew up in; Lima, Peru and Bellingham, WA, together with their digital design training in New York City.
Both creatives, with training in Architecture and Industrial Design, Maria and Santiago find inspiration in the development of new relationships between the digital design of our generation together with artisan craft. 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.
