La muerte tiene permiso*
La Muerte Tiene Permiso* arose from a desire to share a contemporary Mexican design aesthetic in a European context. Travelling through the design capitals of Europe, architect and designer Omar Ortiz Franco found a range of international influences, yet Mexico - World Design Capital in 2018 - was nowhere to be seen. Omar created La Muerte Tiene Permiso* to celebrate the unique materials and historic traditions of his country with a contemporary finish. His design inspiration comes from the vernacular materials and crafts traditions from around Mexico, histories and folk stories, and Mexican cinema and photography. The collection is equally informed by Omar’s architectural design aesthetic, which focuses on clean lines and attention to materials, and his desire to explore what it means to dwell in a home.
