Frida Escobedo Creates Three Drinking Bowls for Maestro Dobel

These drinking bowls by architect Frida Escobedo enjoy a rustic, locally inspired aesthetic and are used as an elegant branding leverage. The vessels are made for Maestro Dobel — an alcohol distiller that has gained recognition for its multi-aged clear tequila.

Frida Escobedo's designs are directly informed by the industry. The objects spotlight "rich materials and textures found in the Mexican landscape" and since they are handcrafted, the value of the drinking bowls is enhanced. The tableware spotlights "wide rims and rounded forms." This shape is strategically created by the architect to reference the silhouette of a jícara which is "a cup made from the fruit peel of the calabash tree." This gains even more relevance as the jícara is also "traditionally used to drink tequila."
