Another interior design duo (and this time, a married couple), Agnes Studio is where you’ll find Estefania de Ros, who has studied both interior and furniture design, as well as Gustavo Quintana-Kennedy, whose background is in architecture and design founderism, per their website. Both from Guatemala, the pair launched their business in 2017, and in the time since, have focused on concepts that look to the world around them and the future for inspiration, which has always been a part of de Ros’ life.
“I always knew what I wanted to do: create. I’ve loved painting since I was little, and my mom and aunt had a textile factory where they collaborated with different local artisans,” de Ros told Latinness. She also recalled, “Looking back now, I also remember wanting to be a photographer. It was what I really liked, but since there was no photography school in Guatemala, I studied interior design and that’s how I started.”
Exploring potential existences and attempting to bring that into our current reality, de Ros and Quintana-Kennedy see where they can take traditional influences by working with unrestrained techniques. Agnes Studio’s take on design, which has a strong artistic side, has resulted in a stunning wood-filled space that boasts the team’s own Lana Chair as well as the Códice Side Table. That’s not to mention the light and bright atmosphere in their own space that features a fantastic combination of natural materials, comfortable furniture, and modern accents.
