The Escandon neighborhood in Mexico City is located next to the working-class neighborhood, Tacubaya and was well known as a place of leisure at the beginning of the last century for the city’s high society, giving way to a rapid urbanization of the western section with the construction of manors. To this day beautiful homes built at the end of the XIX century are preserved. Maison Diez Company will be housed in one of these beautiful villas. Escandon is considered one of those neighborhoods with the most prominent Mexican lineage. It has been a refuge for well-known artists, creatives, publicists, lawyers and academics. The small local shops thrive thanks to local support, giving this neighborhood a small town feel in the midst of the cosmopolitan Mexico City. Nonetheless, the high demand for this area in the XXI century has begun to change all of this and some now refer to it as the “New Condesa”, eventhough the locals are adamant in preserving its original name.
Maison Diez Company and The Light Report are both initiatives of Rodrigo Fernandez who is the director and co-founder of Diez Company. He has forged the path, developing a market for the lighting industry with offerings never seen before in Mexico. His goal is to create a community that benefits manufacturers, as well as distributors, interior designers, and of course the final customer. Rodrigo has put together a group of experts this year to help him bring to life his vision of this project. The contribution made by this group of experts has made Maison Diez Company a project like no other from the many angles of architecture, interior design, textile design, color, photography, floral architecture, communication and food design.
For Diez Company, the word ‘collaboration’ is very important: this is why this project has prominent collaborators. Several companies have become strategic allies for the completion of this project. Our allies are:
