M: You were mentioning that in Mexico there is a gap between the industry and the designers, how is Los Patrones solving this problem?


“industry doesn’t care about designers, being a manufacturing country the industry is accustomed to getting the plans from somewhere..”

A: We are trying to be part of the few manufacturing companies in Mexico that are design-driven, that means we value the work of designers and also working with them is part of how we do things, that in itself I believe is a great step towards closing the gap between designers and industry. One of the main problems designers have in Mexico is that the industry doesn’t care about designers, being a manufacturing country the industry is accustomed to getting the plans from somewhere else and usually only care about their bottom line. The factory used to be like this a few years ago and with Los Patrones we’ve been able to make a slow transformation from only manufacturing to also believing in design and creating value for the Mexican market. In that aspect, Los Patrones is trying to prove that there is a way that the industry and design in Mexico can work and grow together...
