In regards to her line of modern furniture, Mexican city-born designer Liliana Ovalle gets her inspiration from the "improvisation and low resources of the people in Mexico city."

Not everyone is privy to a U-Haul let alone a simple trolley, for them moving becomes an exercise of manipulation and careful knot tying.
