In “La Filosofía en el Tocador”, Armando de la Garza presents us new executive lines that do nothing but enrich a firm reflection always materialized in surprising pieces. They are spaces that break with the most schematic or representative traditions of the classic boudoir.
The objects that he choses have an ambiguous and disturbing connotation due to the hierarchy in which they are found, and through his work seeks to challenge it. As Confucius said: "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
