TAMAYO DWM PROJECT

This multidisciplinary exercise combines art, design and architecture to create a temporary installation in the gardens of the Tamayo Museum. For the 2015 edition, the Mexican firm C Cubica Arquitectos will collaborate with the Italian firm Palomba + Serafini Associati. Together they will develop a living structure by merging nature and design by Pedro Sanchez, creating a way to invite the community to interact in the space. Through the Tamayo Museum’s agenda, a culinary program will be carried out thanks to the kitchen provided by Piacere and floor by Porcelanosa.

 

The project will also collaborate with Limbo, a public installation for seed storage for the urban zones of Mexico that seeks to raise public awareness of the food crisis which we live in, and to reconnect with the idea of ​​protecting our food by creating a network of seeds, and give immediate support to communities in need.

territorio creativo: inedito

Territorio Creativo is an initiative by Design Week Mexico that seeks to promote and exhibit contemporary Mexican design. Since 2014, TC has supported Mexican designers to exhibit at design fairs around the world, such as Wanted Design in New York and Maison & Objet in Paris.

 

For the first time in Mexico, Territorio Creativo will present a collection of never before seen pieces by 40 Mexican designers, compiling their ideas of design characterized by its origins. TC will present a collection of work that studies and promotes contemporary Mexican design’s paradigms and commitment to creativity and production. We seek to have a presence that includes works that present themselves in a surprising kaleidoscope of design committed to high quality products.

 

For TC it’s essential to promote healthy competition initiatives in the creative processes that enrich us as a society to meet the challenges of the future regardless of the scale of the project. Together we express our dedication to the materials, mixing method and design innovation, tradition and high quality as a fundamental part of our design philosophy.

TERZO PARADISO by MICHELANGELO PISTOLETTO

Through DWM and Advento Art Design, Pistoletto will donate two of his pieces "Terzo Paradiso" to Mexico. One that to be installed in the gardens of the Museum of Modern Art and the second in our “Guest State”: Chiapas. Pistoletto works with the happening of his works, the action or staging, which is almost as important as the work itself. Some of his works are kept in museums of contemporary art from around the world, including the Tate Gallery in London and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid. During the 1960s, Pistoletto became one of the greatest exponents of Arte Povera, an art trend that proposes artworks from humble and accessible materials.

 

“The merger between the first and second paradise. The first is that where man was completely integrated with nature. The second is the artificial paradise created by man with artificial desires and passions. The idea behind Terzo Paradiso is taking the artifice back to earth restoring common ethical principles of conduct to ensure the survival of man.” - Michelangelo Pistoletto

 

Terzo Paradiso is represented by a reconfiguration of the symbol for “infinity". The "New Infinity" are three interlocking circles symbolizing the Terzo Paradiso.

VISION and Tradition

In this edition, DWM launches the initiative "Guest State" with Chiapas as the first participant. We invited Italian and Mexican designers to collaborate with artisans from different communities in Chiapas. Exploring the development of "Vision and Tradition".

 

Mexican tradition is a path full of color, materials and stories that make Mexican culture rich and unique. Today we seek inspiration from the traditional crafts, reassessing and rediscovering the hand made process. Designers with striking and distinctive aesthetic build a bridge between design and traditional craftsmanship resulting in a unique perspective.

 

The vision is to understand the Mexican heritage and integrate it on the global design scene, where there is a standardization of process and balance between tradition, technology and knowledge.
