during this year’s abierto mexicano de diseño the mexican studio briefcase presented its observatory installation in a public space behind the torre latino americano in the historic center of mexico city.

 

the installation was made up of a bench and 3 concave concrete surfaces placed freely upon the square´s floor allowing users to lay back and take in their surroundings. the design of the 800kg discs meant that they swiveled and rocked with considerable ease – proving to be very popular with visitors.
