Presentation by Mexican designer Fernando Laposse

We are beyond excited to welcome Fernando Laposse to the island and learn from his experience. A product designer by trade, Fernando Laposse specializes in transforming natural materials into elegant design pieces, often working with under-utilized plant fibers traditional to Mexico such as sisal, loofah and corn leaves. His work is informed by research into these materials and their historical and cultural ties to a particular location and its people. Laposse often works with indigenous communities in his native Mexico to create local employment opportunities and raise awareness about the challenges they face in a globalizing world. Stay tuned for more information.
