gt2P | Royal MahuidaRoyal Mahuida (which means ‘Native Forest’ in Mapuche Chilean natives’ language) is a tribute to the Inca Empire, devastated by Spanish conquerors. Incas, according to local traditional stories, had to bury and hide their gold in the Chilean native forest.

gt2P | Royal MahuidaWe imagine that in a thousand years from now, after several mankind’s conflicts and wars, there will be a reborn of our specie and civilization. Eventually, these new men will find the Incas’ hidden treasures in the forest, being delighted by the forgotten beauty of gold. Therefore, paying tribute to the forest for providing the precious metal, their new chalices, plates and bowls will not be based in their gods or heroes, but inspired by the generous nature (just like Mapuches who made their artifacts in its honor).

Royal Mahuida is made of bronze, a noble material that resembles gold, through die-casting in molds copied from 3D printed models.
