Ariel Rojo Design Studio is a firm committed to improving the quality of life through design solutions. Responsibility and good humor are some of the key ingredients in their proposals. Faithful to one of Albert Einstein´s ideas: “If you expect different results, don't do the same thing over and over again”, Ariel Rojo is always after the way his designs are received taking a smile from the user or inspiring him in a deep thought. A period of his professional education was spent at UNAM, however he started to work at a very young age, when 17 he was designing mother boards for the oil platforms among other electronic fields. At 21 he was part of the winning team for the remodeling project for the Zocalo in Mexico City, one of the three biggest squares in the world, receiving an individual mention for the urban furniture design by him. These two experiences, in different scales, have influenced Ariel Rojo´s work to be both multistage and multidisciplinary. Today Ariel Rojo Design Studio is an international design firm with clients in Mexico, Europe, USA and the Middle East. His projects have gone beyond the frontiers and have been awarded and exhibited in a myriad of specialized competitions, websites, books and magazines, from the design store at MoMA N.Y. to the Design Olympics 2010 in South Korea. Kikkerland Design partnered with Ariel Rojo, Gava Design Mexico, UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) and a group of ambitious students to create products using the Kikkerland aesthetic and a cultural reference the students were familiar with. Five student works were chosen to be produced. Fossil Erasers - Gilberto Gonzalez Gator Grator - Sarahi Delgado Luchador Bottle Openers - Andres Lhima Tree Friendly Pencils - Andrea Roman Skull Corkscrew - Stephanie Suarez"Ping-Ling, Pang-Lang" is a term known in Hong Kong to describe life in a state of chaos and general confusion. Ping-Ling is an off spring of Sparklz and Awika and charged genetically by those two oddities of the mechanical world, so there is no way it could behave otherwise but in a state of mechanical confusion. Wind up Ping-Ling all the way without forcing the spring, and set it forth to its own discombobulation. As usual, we do not recommend allowing Ping-Ling to drop off from the edge of tables. Please be gentle with it as life is sufficiently confusing for Ping-Ling just as it is under normal circumstances.
