‘the letter E is everywhere’ now on show at Archivo Diseño y Arquitectura, Mexico City (until August 9, 2013) provides an intimate look into the work of of the Berlin studio Manuel Raeder. The exhibition is presented in partnership with Centro de Diseño de Oaxaca (where it was first shown in late 2012).
