Prickly Pair Chairs by Valentina Glez Wohlers is a furniture project born out of the creative experience of a Mexican designer in Europe. The Nopal cactus symbolizes Mexican heritage and national pride. According to legend, the Gods told the Aztecs to build Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City) in the place they saw an eagle standing on a Nopal, devouring a snake. To this day, the image resides on the Mexico’s Cote of Arms.
