For the second chapter of the 2012 edition of Mexico Through Your Senses, Mexican designer, Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers showcased samples of her unique line of furniture. From “The Ghost of a Chair” to tables that mimic the outline of Tenochtitlan -the capital of the Aztec Empire, now Mexico City. Guests had the chance to catch a glimpse of Valentina’s staggering creativity. Although her style has a strong rooting in Mexican traditions, it remains fiercely contemporary.
During the event, Valentina held a public conversation with Piers Roberts Director of the prestigious design show Designersblock, in which she explained the principles that underlie her work, as well as her professional trajectory.
Mexico Through Your Senses is a series of events organised by the Embassy of Mexico in the UK, in which select British audiences are invited to explore contemporary Mexican culture.
