The Experimental Mexico City Design Shop That’s On Our Must-Visit List

We’ve experienced such a shrink in the retail industry over the past two years that it honestly feels incredibly heartening to see a brick-and-mortar design store of all things opening in Mexico City this week. Called ORIGINARIO and led by Andrés Gutierrez — whose work we featured early last summer — the store is a destination where design folks can shop for furniture, objects, and art by homegrown talents, including Comité de Proyectos, CHUCH, Bestia, Raúl de la Cerda, Flama, A-G studio, and more. But it’s also meant to be a platform for the Mexican design industry, offering a space in which to showcase experimental exhibitions and new ideas from national talents. Located across five color-coded rooms in an old house in the Colonia Roma district of Mexico City, it’s definitely going to be on our must-visit list next time we visit the capital.
