                                This year’s <a href="http://www.designweekmexico.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">9th edition of Design Week Mexico (DWM)</a> drew in over 85,000 visitors, conveyed more than 200 design studios and brands, and launched a series of exhibitions and installations that spotlight the country’s affinity and advocacy for design and architecture. Here are a few of our favorite highlights:
The prestigious Design Week Mexico Inédito prize was awarded to Lucila Torres and Max Almeida of Studio äCo in collaboration with Fernando González for their innovative ceramic nest heater prototypes, the ECN02 (fire ceramic nest 02) and ECN03 (electric ceramic nest 03). These heaters use the properties of ceramics to dissipate/conserve heat and, thanks to the Inédito prize, Studio äCo will be able to provide these energy-efficient heaters to vulnerable communities in the Chiapas region. DWM hosted Switzerland as the guest country and celebrated the country’s design legacy at the Museo de Arte Moderno with the 100 Years of Swiss Design

WALALA X PLAY: A Colorful, Interactive Installation by Camille Walala

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/walala-x-play-a-colorful-interactive-installation-by-camille-walala/walala-x-play-camille-walala-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://1.design-milk.com/images/2017/07/WALALA-X-PLAY-Camille-Walala-1-810x558.jpg" alt="WALALA X PLAY: A Colorful, Interactive Installation by Camille Walala" /></a>
                                We fell hard for the French-born <a href="http://camillewalala.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Camille Walala</a> last year after <a href="http://design-milk.com/artist-camille-walala-london/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">spending the day with her</a> in her adopted hometown of East London. Now, the artist/designer has created an eye-popping interactive installation, <a href="http://nowgallery.co.uk/exhibitions/walala-x-play/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">WALALA X PLAY</a>, that&#8217;s complete with her signature graphic patterns, geometric shapes, and bold colors.
Walala was invited as NOW Gallery’s 2017 Design Collaborator for their summer program and she doesn’t disappoint. She created a colorful maze that references the waterways of the Greenwich Peninsula, the curve of the Thames, and the shape and angles of the building. From above, the layout of the installation perfectly mirrors the aerial view of the location. Visitors are invited to immerse themselves within the playful labyrinth of geometries and patterns that are often broken and distorted for visual effect, and challenged to spot the differences. WALALA X PLAY is on display through September 24th, 2017 at NOW Gallery in London.
