CLASSICS

 

ICONIC PIECES BY MEXICO'S DESIGN MASTERS
 

Our Classics collection represents the work of some of the most important designers and architects based in Mexico during the 20th Century. Before now, much of their work hadn’t been seen outside Mexico or given the international acclaim it deserved. At the time, it was a symbol of Modern Mexico: pioneering innovative design that was technically advanced infused with tenets of local hand craftsmanship and raw materials. Our reproductions of these designs endeavor to keep as much of this philosophy as possible. We believe in creating furniture that is as collectible now as it was when it was first produced.


  MICHAEL VAN BEUREN   As a designer, Michael van Beuren embodies the very essence of our company’s design philosophy: an American, trained in Europe at the prestigious Bauhuas school, before finally settling in Mexico to bridge the gap between a modernist design movement and local Mexican craftsmanship.
