Cristián Mohaded

Brief info

Cristián Mohaded is an Argentine artist and designer born in the countryside (Catamarca, 1980). He is a graduate of the National University of Córdoba, and today he works between Buenos Aires and Milan.

Mohaded works primarily in the language of industrial design but with the soul of a native craftsman. He has always worked closely with artisans from his home country, exploring traditions, crafts, and local culture, blurring the line between design and art. He also works internationally as an independent designer in the fields of furniture, lighting, products, and installation. From private commissions to industrial companies, he is dedicated to developing and designing objects with a strong focus on materiality, artisanal techniques, and production processes. His portfolio includes work for Thonet, Moooi, Roche Bobois, Boffi, and Habitat.

In 2021 Mohaded presented Territorio Hibrido, his first solo exhibition and accompanying monograph at the National Museum of Decorative Art, Buenos Aires. The same year, he was named Ambassador of the Marca Pais of Argentina, for the recognition of cultural diversity, indigenous materials, and the productive capacities of the nation in his work as a designer, with the aim of promoting the formation of an understandable image of what defines Argentina at an international level.

In 2022, Mohaded was awarded by a prestigious national jury with the Konex-Diploma of Merit Award 2012 -2022 (Visual Arts), by the Konex Foundation, the most prestigious Argentine fine art award. Mohaded has participated in numerous national and international fairs and exhibitions. His works are part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Arts and Design (2022, NYC, USA), the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2019, Philadelphia, USA), and at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (2014, Paris, France). His work has been documented and archived since 2016 at the Foundation –I-D-A (Research in Argentine Design), canonizing him as one of the young leaders of Latin American design. He represented his country with the Monte Abierto project for the design of the Argentine Pavilion at the London Design Biennial in 2021.
