Studio Ocho Cuartos was created by Mexican-American designer Monserrat Cotugno and filmmaker Alec Cotugno. The studio was born and raised in the desert along the border.

An interdisciplinary studio that builds worlds through furniture, objects, and interiors, our studio passionately journeys into the intersections of the found and the unknown.
