Clara Porset. Passion for knowledge and industrial design

More information

Clara Porset

Clara Porset was born in Cuba in 1895, although her life was spent between her native country and her host country, Mexico. The origin of a wealthy family gave her the possibility of studying in New York and touring various countries, including some in Europe.

She stands out for her work in the field of design, specifically industrial design, and interior design. However, a not so well known facet of hers but just as important is that of a university professor and researcher. She has an important production of critical texts focused on design.

All of her work is marked by two countries that at that time faced numerous social, political and economic changes. These works and the materials that she used were inexpensive so that they were easy to acquire by the entire community.
