The significance of housing a design collection in a Mexican museum cannot be overstated. These collections serve not only as a forum for discourse but also as a custodian of tangible cultural expressions. Documenting, preserving, and caring for design objects that encapsulate Mexican cultural heritage are vital. Constructing narratives from a Mexican design collection is crucial. It's about more than just curation; it's about fostering appreciation and promoting understanding. This endeavor illuminates the role of design objects in our daily lives, turning everyday artifacts into portals of cultural knowledge and reflection.
