The project was conceived by two friends setting out into the world of design, realising they were stronger together than apart. After working together for multiple exhibitions the duo realised that by upscaling the project the benefits would also increase. Simply put, a designer lead collective, designed with fellow designers in mind.

Ana initially founded her eponymous studio, Ana JP design and has since gone on to create the brand Tropel- scaled versions of a furniture collection inspired by the unexpected nature of the Mexican character.

Gigi spends the rest of her time running her, Studio 9191, where innovative material treatments are at the core of the studio's design ethos are implemented to bold visual effect.
