Ries is a Buenos Aires based studio devoted to designing and producing furniture, objects, and spaces.
The studio’s approach to design is influenced by the mixed background in architecture and industrial design of its members, who, through a shared vision, achieve to combine different materials with production processes rooted in craft and industry to create pieces that seek to elevate the experience of the everyday life.
Drifting between aesthetic simplicity and resolutive complexity, their work covers diverse fields that range from the design of small objects to interior design projects, as well as from the creation of unique pieces to serial production.
The vast majority of the studio’s production is held at Cha co, the workshop that functions as a laboratory and experimentation space for the development of the ideas conceived at the design office.
In 2018, together with Juan García Mosqueda, they founded Quick Tiny Shows, an experimental platform to promote the exhibition of new ideas regarding art, design and architecture.
The studio was founded in 2016 and is directed by Marcos Altgelt and Tasio Picollo.
