You didn’t need a passport to get a taste of Mexico during NYCxDesign. The new CDMX-based collective of nine Latin American designers, Omet, is continuing the country’s tradition of cutting-edge design through exhibitions where guests are encouraged to touch, feel and even lounge in its furniture. I loved how typically mundane household objects were honored, from Mexican hot chocolate whisks in this stool, to mortars and temolotes used to grind grains in this chair.
