Galería Mexicana de Diseño (GMD) was created by Mexican designer and visionary Carmen Cordera Lascurain in 1990, and for the last 20 years it has been a platform for the promotion and commercialization of contemporary Mexican and international design in all forms, ranging from furniture to textiles, jewelry, graphics, as well as product and architectural design to establish a dialog between design, the audience and the client.
To commemorate GMD’s 20th anniversary, they have published a book entitled 20 Years of Design in Mexico that brings together their best exhibitions, the significance of the Gallery, and the leading role it has played in Mexico City. It includes commentaries by renowned designers and communication specialists talking about design in Mexico.
In addition, they are also launching a special line of products called 20/20 (perfect vision), selecting the most outstanding and representative expressions of Mexican design through the products of 20 experienced designers and 20 young talents, all for sale at the Gallery and other designated sites. Here is a sampling of the products.
