About

ABOUT Puerto Rico Diseña features independent designers, makers, collectives and local brands that make up the island’s thriving creative community. Founded in 2013, our mission is to inspire people through design to choose local products and foster creative entrepreneurship. We are inspired by people who do what they love and discovering new designers and products. We think small batch production and sustainability matter when it comes to design. We are driven by a big belief that this tiny island has some pretty outstanding people creating and innovating everyday and we want to share that with the world.   THE BEGINNING We started Puerto Rico Diseña for one simple reason, to make it easy for people to discover design and quality craftsmanship. Founded by Michelle Perez Kenderish, the idea for the site was inspired in 2013 through a collaboration with Marilu Purcell, Andrea Bauza, Melissa Ramos Borges and Auralis Herrero Lugo during FAD (Feria de Arte y Diseño) an art and design fair in San Juan, in an effort to document and share the work of some pretty outstanding local makers, designers and artists.     WHAT WE DO We support design entrepreneurship by developing commercial platforms, concept stores, curating exhibitions, designing events and creating content that promotes local talent....
Chromatica Group

Chromatica Group

Interior designer Carene Pérez and photographer Carlos Pérez of Chromatica Group combine their talent to design, manufacture and sell lamp shades and lamps.  The work of Chromatica has a common denominator: the telling of a story. The inspiration for their pieces comes from places as diverse as nature, urban areas and industrial zones, and so are the different materials used: wood, cement, iron. For example, the model ‘Village of La Mancha’ shows in its lamp shade the first chapter of the masterpiece of Miguel de Cervantes. The ‘Imagine’ lamp shade is a picture that Carlos took from the trees surrounding the memorial to John Lennon in Central Park, in New York. In addition to their collections, they offer consulting services and custom designs.  Explore: www.chromaticagroup.com Contact Designer:...

Sally Torres Vega

In 2008 Sally Torres Vega launched her eponymous label fabricating time-less garments. Her work is definitely a labor of love which includes intricately sculpture-like silhouettes woven with natural fibres, high-quality craftsmanship, with a socially responsible transparency producing her work locally in the Caribbean. In her work she studies the aesthetics of movement, texture and effects of shape. She reinterprets classic silhouettes in fashion history and works around the basics of garment-making; such as the possibilities of craftsmanship and design in texture, color and form. She make clothes in order to explore a woman’s grace. Comfort and quality are her main standards to create easy-going, beautiful and wearable pieces.
