JUNE 18, 2024 – Mexico City-based design and architecture studio, ATRA, is excited to announce its inaugural participation in NOMAD, a premier showcase for contemporary art and design. The event will be held from July 4- 7, 2024, on the enchanting Italian island of Capri.

Marking its 14th edition, NOMAD Capri will feature ATRA’s first appearance, following the studio’s successful European debut at Milan Design Week last April. For this prestigious occasion, ATRA will present a curated selection of its most iconic pieces in an exhibition titled “Future Relics.” This selection embodies the studio’s innovative vision of design for the “near future.” Taking part as one of the Special Projects, “Future Relics” will include distinctive new additions to ATRA’s furniture and lighting series.


Highlights will feature the versatile Beluga modular L-shaped sofa, the luxurious Egge chairs upholstered in long-pile alpaca, the elegant Pebble coffee table crafted from white onyx marble, and the unique lights from the Menaad series. This curated selection reflects ATRA’s relationship with nature, technological well-being, spirituality, and the interactions inspired by these themes.

Founder Alexander Díaz Andersson’s visionary approach to design is showcased in this exhibition, blending futuristic concepts with traditional elements. His unique perspective redefines the perception of weight and balance, resulting in pieces that are both visually stunning and structurally innovative, merging Scandinavian minimalism with Mexican maximalism. ATRA’s commitment to innovation and artistic expression shines through in “Future Relics,” which explores new materials and reinterprets traditional methods through unconventional processes.

Nature serves as an endless source of inspiration, driving the exploration of the indescribable spaces in between — the points of tension that bring harmony to each design.
