The juxtaposition of temporary fabric roofs in Mexico’s street markets influenced the design of ‘Toldo’, a table by designer Christian Vivanco.
“Toldo is a design exercise based on a research for maximum simplicity and functionality.” says Vivanco. “[It] embodies a concept through simple geometries with clear references to traditional utilitarian furniture, however express a well defined contemporary identity, answering daily needs, through the generation of multiple different horizontal planes vertical levels.”
The diversity in size and position of the surfaces generates multiple uses and functions for Toldo, a flexible piece of furniture capable of adapting to different contexts and users.
The pine wood and MDF Toldo is handmade by Mexican artisans in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
