A flat-pack home decor inspired in the Cartesian coordinate system for a three-dimensional space. I took the 3 axis (X, Y and Z) to do a home decor object that place a point in the space. The product comes in two identical pieces that you just assemble. This way, you can combine them and get a more custom objet according to your home style.

We are Karla Bonilla and Gabriela Rubio,
a young salvadoran duo of  interior and
furniture designers who met while studying
Interior Architecture at Escuela de
Arquitectura in El Salvador. We founded
Medio Limón (en. half a lemon) to squeeze
our creativity, add a whimsical touch and
become the complement for our client’s
residential, commercial and furniture
design projects, to make them feel
they’ve found their other half!

We are a couple of Salvadoran designers whose relationship is based on friendship and the commitment that we assume as future representatives of design in our country. We met as classmates in the university and our friendship grew strong as a result of treating each other on a daily basis, eventually we decided to take the opportunity of working together and that’s when the magic happened. The love for design and the attention we pay to every detail allows our minds to work as one and makes the whole designing experience a process that happens as natural as breathing.

I am Natalia Letona, a 24 year old graphic design student. I can’t imagine my days without  music and colors; I feel them inside of me and that’s what I express through my characters. I love drawing “tea time” situations and including music references in my graphics.

Emma Schonenberg learned to love crafts and art in general thanks to her personal ceramic classes her mother’s shop provided when she was growing up. She majored in Graphic Design at a local college and before receiving her degree she started pursuing a design career with Salvadoran advertising and apparel companies. The job that helped change her life was a local candle manufacturer/exporter where she worked for 6 years as head of the design and product development department. Her unique and trend driven designer collections were distributed through major retail chains in both the United States and Europe.

During one of her many trips to the United States, Emma came across the show SURTEX in New York and found there was another unexplored area a Salvadoran Graphic Designer could do: Surface Design!

She currently works in her own design studio in El Salvador and travels back and forward to trade shows in the United States. She has participated in Brand Licensing Europe, Surtex and at Printsource five years in a row now. Her clients range from party supply manufacturers, high-end apparel, textile, stationery and scrapbook, among other products.
