TELL US ABOUT CREATING MARIE BURGOS DESIGN?

WHAT IS YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS?

Marie Burgos Design: In interior design, I focus on listening and observing to be able to grasp as much as possible of my clients’ personality and visions, as inspiration for their space. The first meeting is always very important to start establishing a bond with my clients and also have a feel of the space. Before starting the design process, I think about the ideal lifestyle and how I could bring beauty, but also, supportive energy to their home or office. 

The next step is CAD drawings, and manufacturing hand-in-hand with our makers to create the perfect piece. I like to have great relationships with my team, my vendors, and my collaborators too so we can create the best products for my clients.

INSPIRATION FOR YOUR COLLECTION?

WHAT INTRIGUED YOU TO JOIN 54KIBO?

Marie Burgos Design: I see more and more African diaspora influences in the world of design. Rich colors and patterns inspired by Africa and the Caribbean are appearing... I love that 54kibo exclusively showcases the craftsmanship of artists and designers of the African Diaspora! It is so important to support our art and value it highly, as it should be. You are giving us a platform to shine and grow. I wish many more beautiful artists’ work will appear on your platform.  
I love the necklace-inspired lampshades by Candice Lawrence. They are contemporary, feminine-looking, and authentic at the same time. I love the fact that they’re handmade so a lot of love and craftsmanship was put into them. I already purchased 2 for some of my design projects!
