Pedro & Juana's pestle and mortar for Maestro Dobel references the birthplace of tequila | Dezeen

Mexican architecture studio Pedro & Juana explains how its bar tool for Maestro Dobel is influenced by Mexico’s culinary culture and geographies, in this talk produced by Dezeen for the tequila brand.

Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss, the founders of the Mexico City-based architecture practice, spoke to Dezeen’s editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs about their design for a pestle and mortar used for the making and serving of tequila-based cocktails.

Called Tejolote, the sculptural object is made up of a pestle and a volcanic rock mortar, which together are used to juice, grind and crush ingredients for cocktails.

The architects designed the object as a nod to Mexican culinary traditions and the geography of the Mexican state of Jalisco, where tequila originates from.

“There’s a history to kind of all these objects that interests us,” the architects explained in the video.
