Traffic Museum is preparing to celebrate its third edition, with the participation of eleven Costa Rican talents, who inspired their work in the trajectory of designers Mario Hernández (Colombia) and Óscar –Toribio– Hernández (Costa Rica). From October 31, the followers of the design will be able to visit this exhibition at the Jade Museum, a proposal that goes beyond fashion and mix with clothing, unique pieces such as furniture and accessories.
Like its other editions, it explores to highlight the value of national design through a democratic platform, the talent can connect with new audiences; while allowing the public to live that experience fashion differently.
Traffic Museum, we’re looking to consolidate fashion, art, design, and technology to create a powerful tool that educates and active public spaces with exhibitions, presentations, and collaborative tools at the same time.Gabriela Delgado, Project Director
The essence of leather goods
In honor of the work of the Colombian designer Mario Hernández, and the opening collaboration for the national exponent Oscar Hernández (Toribio), the third edition of the Traffic Museum is inspired by the trajectory of these artisans. A composition for the synergy of talents and the vision of progress that both creatives combine to create a piece of limited edition and Latin American value.
A few months ago I had the opportunity to visit the Mario Hernández factory and the experience was extremely gratifying, talking and discover the keys to his process as a designer, he inspired me for the piece that will be developed soon. A work that, beyond being a reflection of the alliance, is the example that as an industry we can work for hand by hand; the essence that seeks to highlight in this new edition of Traffic Museum.Oscar Hernández, designer of the national firm Toribio.
Nine design pieces made by Annabella Prins with Mauricio Cruz, Darry Jiménez, Fernando Ramírez, Fruela, Helen Núñez, Mariana Castro, Michelle Duarte, Tobias Karolicky and Sharon Tello with Camila Calvo; that diverge in form and converge in essence. All of them with elements of the leather goods inserted within their DNA and that will dazzle from October 31 at the Jade Museum as part of Traffic Museum.
