Two Furniture Collections That Prove the Mexican Design Scene Is on the Rise

By now you’ve all heard some variation on the rumor that Mexico City is the new Berlin; maybe you’ve even had an artist friend make good on their threats to move down there. Certainly it’s a city that everyone suddenly has big plans to visit, and for good reason — the Mexican art and design scenes are increasingly (for lack of a better word) hot right now, and if our report last year from design week didn’t convince you of the latter, the projects below just might. The first is a collaboration between the branding studio Savvy and the design firm PLDO, which debuted at this year’s Design Week Mexico, and features Brutalism-inspired furniture and lighting in materials such as colored concrete, metal mesh, and coated aluminum. The second is a project that PLDO — which in addition to Mexico City also has offices in New York and Madrid — launched this past May, at New York Design Week. Lunch at Contramar, anyone?
