Felix is a miniature sofa with a mesmerizing canopy that takes inspiration from Mexican architectural designs of the 1950s in which paraboloid structures and arches defined the country’s identity. Its pergola-style cover provides visual separation to the user without restricting visibility. This visual lightness is a perfect contrast to its robust frame. Its skeleton is made of tough tubular steel while the cushion is fashioned from polyurethane foam and polyester, making it ideal for either indoor or outdoor use.
This contemporary interpretation not only pays homage to this landmark in architectural history in a fun, modern way, but it also part of a larger effort by designer Christian Vivanco to conceive, produce and market his products in Mexico and in collaboration with Mexican companies like Los Patrones.
