ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS - MANUAL DE MONTAJE, MEXICO CITY
For the second exhibition of ARCHIVO a new institution dedicated to establish a design collection in Mexico City, PRODUCTORA was invited as guest curator and exhibition designer. The exhibition 'Assembly Instructions - Manual de Montaje' takes a look at the tectonics of the objects that surround us. Through the lens of the poetry of construction and the technical representation by anonymous drawings, more then 50 objects of the collection are represented on one single table that covers almost the whole exhibition space.
The exhibition includes pieces by Paulo Mendez da Rocha, Achille and Pierre Giacomo Casteglioni, Alvar Aalto, Michael Thonet, Jean Prouve and Charles & Ray Eames alongside popular anonymous design or recent work by Mexican designers such as Emiliano Godoy or Sonia Lartigue.
