Talking to Ektor Rodriguez about the growth of his sensual survivalist brand, Morbo by Ektor, a collection of ethically produced and organically conceived erotic wearables, was extremely stimulating. It allowed us to explore the paths of creativity from an unusually exciting starting point as well as from a practical and proactive perspective.

Morbo by Ektor is the perfect example of how a brand can, and should be, the quasi-literal expression of its creators inner obsessions. Ektor lives and creates – creates and lives – from his home & studio in London, and while, throughout his successful career he has assisted renowned artists, such as Anish Kapoor, realise their visions, transforming them into palpable, three dimensional objects, Ektor has almost inadvertently found himself creating products that embody his powerful and contrasting vision between the organicity of life and the volatility of desire. The objects produced by Ektor represent a fantastic ambivalence: they offer a utilitarian and decorative communion between fetishism and environmentalism, between individualism and tribalism, and between a visceral organicity and intellectual conceptualisation.

Welcome to this intimate encounter with a creative and existential brand that Ektor perfectly describes as one of chic and sensual survivalism. If a less cliché kinky scene, inhabited by objects with a sensory sadism and aesthetic masochism are of interest to you, then stay here and enjoy this conversation and journey that Ektor’s very personal ‘Morbo’ brings us, thanks to his non conformist, communicative and proactive warrior nature.

And now, enjoy the interview!

Parlare con Ektor Rodriguez dell’espansione del suo marchio sensuale survivalista, Morbo by Ektor, e della sua linea di articoli erotici, prodotti in maniera etica ed ecologica, è stato straordinariamente stimolante e ci ha permesso di esplorare i sentieri della creatività con un’impostazione e con una visuale davvero insolite e sorprendentemente eccitanti.

Morbo by Ektor è l’esempio perfetto di come un marchio possa, e debba essere, l’espressione quasi fedele delle ossessioni interiori del suo creatore. Ettore vive e crea, crea e vive, dalla sua casa/studio a Londra, e mentre, nel corso della sua brillante carriera, assisteva artisti famosi, come Anish Kapoor, materializzando le loro visioni e trasformandole in oggetti concreti con un impatto tridimensionale, Ektor, quasi senza volerlo, si è ritrovato a creare una linea di prodotti che incarnano il suo punto di vista, fortemente in antitesi, tra la natura organica della vita e la volatilità del desiderio. Gli oggetti prodotti da Ektor rappresentano sempre un’ambivalenza fantastica : esprimono una sintesi pratica o decorativa tra il feticismo e l’ecologismo, tra l’individualismo e il tribalismo e tra l’istintualità vitale e la concettualizzazione intellettuale.

Benvenuti a questo incontro intimo con una tendenza creativa ed esistenziale che Ektor definisce efficacemente “sopravvivenza chic e sensuale”. Se la scena kinky, davvero poco scontata, e questi oggetti contraddistinti dal masochismo estetico e dal sadismo sensoriale vi sembrano interessanti, allora rimanete qui, godetevi questa conversazione e il viaggio che ci ha offerto l’originalissimo morbo di Ektor, grazie alla sua personalità combattiva, anticonformista, comunicativa e provocatrice.

E adesso, godetevi l’intervista!

Conversar con Ektor Rodriguez acerca del surgimiento de su marca de sobrevivencia sensual y acerca de su linea de artículos eroticos, éticamente producidos y orgánicamente concebidos, Morbo by Ektor, fue sumamente estimulante y nos permitió explorar los senderos de lo creativo desde una linea de acción y un punto de partida completamente inusitados y excitantemente inesperados.

Morbo by Ektor es el ejemplo perfecto de como una marca puede, y debe ser, la expresión casi literal de las obseciones vitales de su creador. Ektor vive y crea, crea y vive, desde su casa/estudio en Londres, y si bien a lo largo de su solida carrera ha asistido a renombrados artistas, como Anish Kapoor, materializando sus visiones y transformándolas en objetos palpables de impacto tridimencional, Ektor sin querer queriendo se ha encontrado a si mismo creando una linea de productos que encarnan su poderosa y contrastante visión entre la organicidad de la vida y la volatilidad del deseo. Los objetos producidos por Ektor presentan siempre una fantástica ambivalencia: todos ellos ofrecen una utilitaria o decorativa comunión entre fetichismos y ecologismos, entre individualismo y tribalismo y entre organicidad visceral y conceptualización intelectual.

Bienvenidos a este encuentro intimo con una tendencia creativa y existencial que Ektor muy bien describe como de supervivencia chic y sensual. Si la escena kinky menos predecible y los objetos de masoquismo estético y de sadismo sensorial les resultan interesantes, entonces no se despeguen, disfruten de esta conversación y del viaje que el muy personal morbo de Ektor nos ofreció, gracias a su naturaleza guerrera, inconforme, comunicativa y provocadora.
