Time Out says
Located between the Juarez neighborhood and the Historic City Center, La Metropolitana is a multidisciplinary space specializing in architecture, interior design, furniture and graphic design.
Founders, Luis David Arredondo, Rodrigo Escobedo, Alejandro Gutiérrez and Mauricio Guerrero are graduates of CENTRO and, since 2008, have ran a dynamic creation project focused on design innovation in every expression.
This workshop/office/showroom has much of its production line up for sale. You’ll find benches and chairs from the "Union" collection, accessories such as vases and picture frames from distributor New Order, handbags, pencil holders... a tiny universe that ranges from small trinkets to large interior design and architecture projects.
Their prices are accessible though, since they depend on the project and the interests of each client: there are items that range from 400 MXN, chairs at 3500 MXN, even armchairs at 8,000 MXN. The best thing is that the service is personalized, so they can also advise you on your purchases.
Each of the collections has different creative guidelines, for example: "Union" is mostly furniture and renewed monthly. The accessories collection, "Lagos del Mundo", is the result of work with craftsman from all over the country which includes candles, candlesticks, cutting boards and more.
When restoring and appropriating a complete building where they installed their shop, workshop and offices, they took advantage of the tradesman that surround them (such as upholstery and sewing) to achieve a community-oriented vibe.
This is one of the best options to buy avant-garde furniture.
