Behind WrinkleMX are Eddy and Astrid Sykes, a Detroit meets Paris couple based in Mexico City since 2019, that combined their forces and expertises to start their design practice.
Eddy is an artist with a mechanical and structural engineer background which enabled him to shape his analytical approach to problem solving through his creative lens. His unique design sensibility is shaped by intensive research, extensive prototyping and ultra precise andexploratory fabrication by hand in the workshop.
Astrid is both an architect and landscape architect whose professional history is one of working on boutique or large urban complex projects and collaboration with top tier talents in Los Angeles. Astrid brings her sensibility and expertise to WrinkleMX as the lead designer and thinker.
The work has always been about the refinement of the idea through execution and the act of fabrication, but craft alone is not what they would consider their primary identity. Their patterns of problem solving have evolved in much the same way as their marriage/ partnership has, to the extent that the banality of daily life is as powerful and relevant as the euphoria of making a great environment or solving a concept through art.
