It’s almost like a fairy tale. The ugly duckling became the beauty queen or rather an abandoned house in Mexico City turned into the stunning, breathtaking Mexico Design House 2018. One of the most important events during Design Week Mexico is the Mexico Design House 2018. For the past ten years, architects, designers, and interior decorators came together to refurbish, redesign, and beautify a different house in a different location each year. This year’s project included 24 design studios from the city and numerous design and lifestyle brands that supplied products for the exceptional building. The Mexico Design House 2018 is open to the public and the design industry at Monte Libano 930, Lomas de Chapultepec from 12 to 28 October 2018. The transformation of the house and the surrounding garden including an addition of a glass tree house design by Broissin is a refreshing take on contemporary design and design thinking. The elegant weaving and merging of the exterior with the interior is a definite eye-catcher. The interior plants mirror the lush, green gardens and some rooms like the master bedroom by Rhyzoma spill out onto the terrace. The Raul de la Cerda Studio’s passageway with marble slates in the window structure give glimpses of the vegetation outside and the stone seats at the entrance let visitors transition smoothly from nature to the built environment. It’s the fourth year that Kohler Company participated in the project supporting numerous architects and designers. The product display in real bathrooms, designed for an actual room, is a great way to showcase innovations. Around 90% of the bathroom products in the Mexico Design House were furnished by our team in Mexico who used the Spectrum of Modernism concept. This concept has been seen throughout the year in various locations around the world including Salone del Mobile in Milan, the recent CityScape Dubai and during the KOHLER Design Forums in London and Toronto. The architects skillfully integrated the Dutchmaster Midnight Floral sinks, Components faucets, and Veil bathtub, and KALLISTA Grid faucet. The 33 square-meter rooftop studio by VGZ Arquitectura y Diseno is a gem in terms of the design and use of space. It also includes solar panels and a rainwater system to address sustainable trends. The Mexico Design House forms an integral part of the Design Week Mexico and has a significant impact on the design community, its forward-thinking, novelties, sustainability, collaboration with local studios and furniture and product manufacturer, and building for the future.
