Memories of Green

About

Arturo Soto is a multiple Award Winner, emerging designer working in London, United Kingdom. Born in Mexico, he graduated from Tadao Ando's Centre of Design & Architecture in Monterrey Mexico in 2012. In 2017 he received a masters degree from The University of the Arts London and founded Memories of Green.

Arturo focuses on bringing attention to both designers and consumers about the beauty and the importance of designing with waste. Elegance and beauty in objects and forms can come from any material.

In collaboration with Tranquil Plants, Memories of Green created the ultimate sculpture to revere earth. By fusing the violent forces of wood sculpting and the colliding of materials with the tranquillity and simplicity of nature. Memories of Green will design a new universe solely focused on worshipping nature as living sculptures, as they should be, sacred monoliths of hope and inspiration.

“Memories of Green’s mission is to show the poetry & beauty of nature by building pedestals to revere it; by using Woodturning and living-Sculptures transforming reclaimed materials into luxury.”
