Named in 2015 as “One of The World’s Hottest New Talents in Design” by Wallpaper Magazine and in 2019, he became the first Latin American named as the “World Youth Designer” by Guangzhou Design Week in China. This work has been published in magazines such as Dezeen, Dweel, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Frame, Domus, The Architect's Newspaper, Forbes, Monocle, among others. And has collaborated with major national and international brands such as Starbucks, Louis Vuitton, Design Week Mexico, Audi and Bombay Sapphire.

 

Trained as a designer in Mexico, Paris and Madrid, looking to have a proper understanding of design, to produce new proposals in products and spaces, always starting from a concept without forgetting his identity, his context and the essence of each project. 

His inspiration is life, the continuous curiosity about things, travel, art, his family, the people around him, his country; Mexico, his history and the passion and the desire to have to do things different.

 

Raul works from his design studio “Raul de la Cerda Studio” based in Mexico City and he employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses the most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence.
