'Under My Roof' is the newest project by Christian Vivanco - a set of shelving and storage inspired by traditional cottages and dollhouses.
"Its part of a bigger exercise in which I tried to create a connection between architecture's icons and the use of scale and proportion to apply them into areas more related to industrial design. Other projects such as "Hool Na chair" and "From A Lost City" have served as starting points." says Christian.
Under My Roof is based on three things: The traditional cottage, with its iconic angled red roof; A typical dollhouse; and the need to organise and store small items in environments such as homes, offices, or children's rooms.
Representing these characteristics in a very simple way, shelves have been included which makes use of the architectural elements, and where each level reflects the possibility of a different use.
Under My Roof its presented as a conceptual exercise and consists of three variations: three houses and three different needs.
Together they generate a kind of neighbourhood, creating a unique skyline wich can be placed on a desk or fixed to a wall to be used by children and adults alike.
