The traditional arts and crafts of South and Latin America and the gripping colorfulness and wildly romantic symbolism of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo provide the ideas for this most colorful topic. Patchwork, painted wood, colored gemstones, hand-woven rugs, plastic furniture and no end of flowers – colors, forms, aromas and motifs as one would find in a market in Guatemala or Bolivia, are the role models for a passionate journey into the modern future.
