ANDEAN is a design studio founded by designer Alejandro Moyano who, after attending Pratt Institute, returned to his native country, Ecuador, to join the best of two worlds: the essence and DNA of his origins with the trend of contemporaneity. Focused on the development and manufacture of high-quality collections and personalized pieces, the studio combines Ecuadorian artisanship with modern manufacturing processes in an innovative and sophisticated way. ANDEAN’s objective is to develop the notion of equatorial design to enhance the Andean material heritage. “Drink from the origin”, techniques, traditions, and materials of the region, to “transpire contemporaneity” through the forms and functions of our daily life.
