Here's a look at the latest designs from Christian Vivanco - a range of occasional tables called 'Los Anafres'.
Inspired by a recent trip to Mexico City, their name and form is derived from a chance outdoor lunch:
"During a short trip to Mexico City I was lucky enough to have lunch in one of those traditional Mexican street food carts. Sitting in a corner, the old lady in charge was using an 'anafre' to cook the food she was offering..." says Christian.
"Anafre is originally a portable oven typical from México and other countries in Latin-America. It's made with thin metal sheets, and usually works with coal.
The word 'anafre' comes from the Arabic nafih ('that blows') and has evolved into al-nafih.. annafi .. annafir .. anafre. The anafre is a great example of time-designed objects that can reflect an entire culture. It can be found in different sizes according to the user's needs, with the structural elements barely changing."
So the idea of translating this basic structure of anafres into different uses and functions began for Christian, who finally came up with three occasional tables constructed in different dimensions; although they share the main structure details of powder-coated steel and a couple of levels in natural sealed oak.
'Los Anafres' can be used both indoors and outdoors and the morphed functional elements of the traditional cooking table now provide lots of space for your magazines, books or plants.
