Our featured Silvina Romero, along with our also featured Martín Corujo, Alfio Demestre and Rita Hampton inaugurated one of the first recycled design showrooms in Buenos Aires, in the chic Palermo neighbourhood. Romero’s accessories with recycled fabric (picture) and Corujo’s lamps share the space with Demestre’s creations with computer parts and Hampton’s drawings and sculptures with paper (pictures in the extended). If Buenos Aires is on your schedule or you’re just thinking about coming the south way, write down MARS showroom’s address: Honduras 4943, 5th floor (tel. 48319497), Palermo Viejo.
