Christian Vivanco and studio were invited to re-imagine the iconic Eames chair for Casa Gutiérrez Nájera in Querretaro, Mexico. He says, “The Eames chairs were analyzed from a Mexican culture point of view; each reflecting different contexts and situations.” How fabulous and whimsical are these renderings of culture with a wooden base structure. The chairs contain new movement and meaning. My favorite is the colorful, shaggy piñata. http://christianvivanco.com/

2. The Mule is inspired by the rugged roadless regions where miners and farmers still depend on the animals for transportation and cargo.
3. A Piñata.
