Studio Cardinal is an evolutionary project that tells stories generated through collaborations between heterogeneous work teams, experimentation with materials and audacious techniques of creation. It generates objects with an aesthetic proposal in response to the essential guidelines of their duties, which purely contextual ornamentation allow it to dialogue with the user and the environment in a contemporary language with classic accents.

The word "cardinal" talks about the essential, transcendental and vital as well as of a direction and starting point, while "studio" alludes to a creative work space. In this way a duo of concepts join together to enshrine free and pure design.

Studio Cardinal was founded in 2013 by designers Maria Valdespín and Gerardo Zaldivar, who met in 2006. Since then, they have been collaborating on various projects that goes from strategic design, product design to interior design.
