Barcelona: Vincon

A trip to Barcelona should include a trip to Vincon for anyone who is design obsessed. Housed in a historic building on the Passeig de Gracia it is filled to the brim with classic pieces and unique creations, many of which are at affordable prices. The lighting department and the furniture gallery should not be missed! Here are some items that caught my eye...


To the right is a Ron Arad chair designed in 2005.







This is a cube light that comes on when you open the top.





Finally, the cereal dispenser, a very useful device in my house.

Thanks for advice. I always dreamed to visit Barcelona. To see beautiful beaches, Gaudi's masterpieces, taste traditional cuisine and learn flamenco dance. And my dream is becoming true, I already bought tickets and now choosing accommodation from many Barcelona hotels. I want to find something close to beach or in historical center.
That's why I'm interesting in everything about Barcelona and Spain.

Nice blog and really interesting article. I have been to this great and beautiful city. Almost whole of Barcelona is 'made by' one architect named Gaudi. His inspiration of shapes from the nature made him put all his ideas into buildings, making almost the whole Barcelona looks amazing. His masterpieces are really great and become visit card of Barcelona.
