Christian Vivanco’s 3 Nenas

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.

1. Based on the lace headdress of the dancers of Guelaguetza in Oaxaca.
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.
