Nº 277
Mexico

May/Jun 2018

Order Magazine

The Mexican design scene is small, but all the better for being linked up. It is not as visible as it would like to be, but is on the way to becoming so through contributing to social change by liaising between industry, crafts, and society. In form 277, we have captured this development in articles on the history of and present-day Mexican design, in interviews with current movers and shakers, and by using examples from the built environment.

Mexico

Text: Stephan Ott

The contrast could hardly be any greater: Elon Musk’s red Tesla Roadster has been floating through space since February to the sounds of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” with an astronaut dummy at the wheel while on earth 123,000 Model S Teslas are recalled on account of the possibility of rusting screws in the power steering. Both events are linked (in this case relating to vehicles) by an interconnection of usefulness which, according to the philosopher Martin Heidegger, only becomes apparent to us when something goes wrong.

Explaining Mexican design to a foreigner is similar to talking about Mexican food: the easiest way to do it would be to mention a lot of names and fancy places as well as historic ones. I am going to write about design here as if I were taking a friend from abroad for a walk with the aim of exploring Mexican street food.

June in Germany mostly means blue skies, occasional clouds, and average temperatures of around 20 degrees Celsius. We can, though, also get storms – and with them outbreaks of rain.
