ABOUT MEXICO DESIGN TIME:
MEXICO DESIGN TIME is a concept, brand, exhibition-format & platform delivering hand-picked, first-class MEXICAN CONTEMPORARY DESIGN CULTURE.
Here, we aspire to communicate in a wider and more comprehensive format what Mexican Design and creativity is all about.
At Mexico Design Time we will promote Mexican designers, craftsmen, artisans and students via stories, objects, projects, a web-shop (coming soon!) and temporary, nomadic, pop-up exhibitions & showrooms. We’ll uncover the diverse talent and protagonists in the creative design culture existing in Mexico to observe the richness and the opportunities this country purveys.
The vast array of traditions, materials, skills, workshops and artisans in place offers creatives an exciting terrain of possibilities to work and live in. Mexican designers are proud about their history, tradition, heritage and craft culture. As such many projects are based on deep artisan-designer collaborations and spur social change and betterment. These collaborations are crucial to preserve valuable and often rare artisan skills and workshops to avoid their extinction.
The creative culture in Mexico is a catalyst for social integration and sustainable design thinking and propels designers to supreme outcomes. Mexico Design Time wants to shed light on this part of the world and its talents that have not received sufficient exposure in the UK, Europe and globally.
