The Second Object, designed by Jorge Diego Etienne in collaboration with Savvy Studio for Casa Bosques, is a mug that continues to work with the ideals of the brand by amplifying the rituals suggested by nature.
Winter is a time for reflection. The cold weather evokes introspection, which translates into a need for mental and physical proximity. The Second Object is a personal item that’s kept close to its user during this process of contemplation.
The Second Object is inspired by the traditional Japanese lacquered cup. The ceramic container is made for hot liquids and is held by a wooden cup that helps disperse heat. The ceramic is in the same form as the pot from the First Object, but with the sculpted wooden cup design, it eliminates the need for a handle, creating an even more intimate experience with the smells, climate, and sensations of the season.

The contrast of materials within the same object is another trait of each Casa Bosques object. With this, the wood will gracefully age and when combined with ceramic, it keeps a pristine appearance through the years. Both components of the Second Object are produced at local workshops with an outstanding family tradition in Monterrey, Mexico.
Casa Bosques is an initiative by Savvy Studio, which aims to develop products and services of a permanent and sustained nature with a strong guiding concept through collaborations with experts of different fields. The concept behind Casa Bosques Objects is strongly influenced by nature, which helps guide each project to reach it’s highest potential.
This is the second in a collection of four seasonal objects produced by Savvy Studio, designed by Jorge Diego Etienne.
