Seating Pieces Inspired From Improvisation In Mexico City by Liliana Ovalle

Royal College of Art graduate and Mexico-city-born designer, Liliana Ovalle, has taken the functional ingenuity of binding, tying and pushing through carriables onto wire frames and transportation trollies, applying this collage-like logic to her furniture. The Mugroso Couch, Mugrosita chair and El Otro (de los Mugrosos) sofa are an ongoing collection started in 2006 of casually-composed seating pieces inspired by the “improvisation and low resources” of the people in Mexico City. The results are wonderfully aesthetic, intuitively constructed with a direct line to their reference material, telling a very nice design story.
