MADE IN MEXICO: POP UP
PRESS RELEASE JUNE 2021
Online design emporium, Revolution of Forms, is hosting its first ever pop-up later this month in London. Taking place between 18th - 27th June at the Grade II-listed The Clerk’s House on Shoreditch High Street, the event will showcase a collection of homewares, celebrating the best in Mexican craftsmanship and design.
Launched in 2020 by Raffaella Goffredi, a former Design specialist at Christie’s, Revolution of Forms is built on two fundamental values: conscious sourcing and transparency. Raffaella sources objects handmade by artisans using natural or recycled material and made with traditional techniques that don’t harm the environment or the people creating them.
Some of the artists who will be featured include: XAQUIXE, a glass studio on a mission to make glass blowing a sustainable and environmentally friendly project; MESTIZ, a project founded in 2015 by Daniel Valero, a Mexican architect and designer, with the desire to create stimulating pieces with a strong regional identity; and COLORINDIO, a textile studio guided by fair-trade principles, working with the indigenous communities in the region of Chiapas to provide a steady income for more than 150 women.
Raffaella Goffredi, founder of Revolution of Forms, comments: “Since we launched in March 2020, the global pandemic has restricted our ability to take the shop offline and I am delighted to finally invite people to explore our collection in person and get a feel for the amazing craftsmanship behind each design. It’s a privilege for me to tell these stories and provide makers with an opportunity to connect with a wider audience, as well as promoting contemporary craft and illustrating the important role it has to play in a future based on sustainability.”
The pop-up will take place between 18th - 27th June at The Clerk’s House, 118 1/2 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JN. The opening hours are Monday to Saturday 11:00-18:00, Sunday 12:00-16:00.
