Multilayer Toldo Table by Christian Vivanco

Mexican designer Christian Vivanco explores supreme functionality, without compromising simplicity, in his latest design, the Toldo table.

The multi-layered surfaces were influenced by the aesthetics of the temporary fabric roofs found at street markets in Mexico. They’re at various heights and hover over each other as needed.

Each surface provides flexible storage options based on how easily one needs to access certain items.

The tables are made by hand by Mexican artisans in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
