The showcase, which also launches this Thursday, is now in its third year, and will take over London’s Earls Court Exhibition Centre for three days to celebrate industrial design from Mexico and Brazil.
Show curator Manuel Díaz Cebrian says, ‘This year’s themes are “Transform to Preserve” and “Design with Identity”. The inspiration behind these ideas is the preservation of native handicrafts and techniques while making the designs relevant for today’s market.’
Among the highlights of the exhibition are furniture pieces form iconic Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer:
It’ll also be good to check out the work of the Campana Brothers, who create furniture pieces inspired by Brazil’s vibrant carnival culture using found objects as materials:
Other works to look out for include this surreal and beautoifl piece by Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers:
The Pinta show runs in parallel to the Fashion and Textile Museum’s celebration of the traditional Mexican rebozo in its Made in Mexico show. The museum has collaborated with Pinta to show at rebozo by Hermilo Lopez Izquierdo at the event.
Pinta London runs from 12 – 15 June at Earl’s Court exhibition centre, Warwick Road, London SW5 9TA
