Kimen

Kimen

Kimen is a brand and studio of creation located in Chile, where handmade objects are designed that arise from the observation and amazement of nature and its textures, systems, and colors. Thus, after the study and analysis of materials, technologies are developed that make it possible to work the imagined forms and then turn them into a new object, the result of ingenuity and curiosity.
Due to her parents’ sensibility and background -her mother an embroiderer and her father a jeweler- along with her experience working in conservation and museums in France, and across diverse cultural locations, Marcela Muñoz creates KN Studio in Chile (2017), her home country.

For KIMEN life is the source of inspiration, and creation of objects it’s a means to reveal its beauty. The affair between the imagined object and the matter leads to the creation of unique handmade pieces that are a reflection of an instant and the mood of their creator. A challenge for KN is the development of systems that bring forth functionality and comfort to the designed objects; where technology and inventiveness are both at its service. There is sophistication in the workmanship and advanced aesthetics in each KN piece, combining nature, mystery, and elegance.
Luxury lays in the time, observation, silence, and sensibility that the author lodges in the complete creation of one specific object, as much as the inventive genius regarding the material and its innovative use.
