The Bienvenido/Welcome Collection

View all 15 Photos

Furniture and accessories designed with modern living spaces in mind.

Mexico City-based studio Christian Vivanco recently unveiled a multi-functional collection that adapts to both the needs of the user and to the ever-changing nature of contemporary living spaces. Developed in a collaboration with Los Patrones, the Bienvenido/Welcome line provides clever solutions for interiors where different inhabitants live and/or work together. As a result, the furniture and accessories from the collection are highly functional as well as easily adaptable to changing needs and flexible environments. Freedom, order and privacy provided the main foundation for the line.

The designs are multi-functional and practical, but they also feature an understated aesthetic and a range of simple materials. The first Bienvenido/Welcome collection includes six items. The Matamoros armchair is compact and fits inside smaller spaces with ease. It also has a small surface where the user can place a book or a cup of coffee. A perfect companion for the armchair, the Acuña side table features shelves at different heights and positions to maximize storage and display space.

Juarez can be used in different ways, whether as a night table, cabinet, dresser, or flexible storage area. The Ojinaga and Reynosa shelves are compact and offer efficient storage and display solutions. Finally, the Sasabe divider offers a convenient way to create a private space in a residential interior or office. It also comes with a range of practical features. These include a bottom shelf for books, plants or electronics as well as a metal surface. The latter provides an ingenious way to display important notes or photos using magnets.

Premium quality materials complement the minimalist designs and simple geometric shapes. American oak and natural wool appear alongside powder-coated steel and soft fabrics. The studio will launch the Bienvenido/Welcome collection at this year’s Maison & Objet on September 7, 2018. Photographs© Christian Vivancos.
