Contemporary furniture design is most associated as coming from places like Italy, Scandinavia, or Germany. But at this year’s ICFF, we noticed a few examples of places you might not expect interesting contemporary design to be coming from. Earlier this week we took a look at the mix of design and craft coming out of the Caribbean. Next, up is El Salvador.

Javier Cristiani studied architecture at Tulane University and furniture design at Parsons School of Design. He returned to San Salvador to establish Hemisferios, an architectural and furniture design firm. Debuting at ICFF was the H-SLD and H-SLM chairs. Each is made from a single piece of either steel or fiberglass formed into a thin, angular seat.

Claudia Zambrana and Jenny Menjivar of Kiu Interiors debuted ‘Jouet’, a collection of objects based on iconic toys. Their table takes inspiration from the classic red wagon and includes a pull handle.
