How I wish I could've visited Mexico City to attend ‘Oscar Hagerman: Sillas de México’ exhibit at the @kurimanzutto gallery.
"Industrial design teaches us to look for original forms, but the greatest achievement is to create a universe that belongs to people and makes them feel like they own and create it." - Oscar Hagerman
The basis of this exposition is the Arrullo chair (1969). Hagerman long collaborated with craftspeople in isolated regions of Mexico, and based the Arrullo chair on a traditional design. The Arrullo chair received significant acclaim and was subsequently reintroduced and reproduced in furniture workshops throughout Mexico. Through this process of widespread reproduction, the Arrullo chair essentially—and intentionally—lost its status as a designer chair. The same design was found in markets, beside highways, in urban markets: the Arrullo chair became a mainstay of design in Mexican homes.

Swipe right to say hello to my new mexican equipale chairs purchased at @luckettstore. it was love at first site. and maybe the infatuation was emphasized after a couple of glasses of wine we enjoyed at the local vineyard BUT I didn't regret it the next morning, not even one bit. obsessed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although, they will have to wait to get a good spot when we actually have room for them in our future home, but I can't pass up a great piece if I see one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
