Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens is a designer who was born in Mexico City and grew up in between Mexico and the Netherlands.
After graduating from the Netherlands Film Academy and working in film and television, he decided to follow his passion for conceiving and making beautiful objects.
So, he set up his furniture design studio in Mexico City. One year later he enrolled in the Furniture Design Graduate Program at the Rhode Island School of Design, focusing on the improvement of his designer and maker skills, expanding and transgressing the boundaries of his artistic expression.
His current work is influenced by his personal experiences, physical surroundings, Mexican and Dutch cultures and how this bicultural tillage has yielded his peculiar artistic perception and his way of living and shaping his world.
The dichotomy between sculpture and functionality is a recurring element in his work, as also an obsessive preference for craft, sustainability combined with the use of digital technologies in design and fabrication. Thus, he achieves an aesthetic that embraces traditional craft with contemporary materials and techniques.
