MICHAEL VAN BEUREN


BORN NEW YORK, 1911


A Mexico-based architect and designer, Van Beuren was born in New York and studied architecture at the Bauhaus under Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Josef Albers until its closure in 1933. He later moved to Acapulco, where he oversaw the interiors of the bungalows at the renowned Flamingo Hotel, and quickly became a formative member of the Mexican Modernism movement. Soon, Van Beuren began focusing on furniture design, working with a Bauhaus colleague, Klaus Grabe, to create modern and affordable pieces. Inspired by the local culture and craftsmanship, the duo applied Bauhaus design principles to popular Mexican mainstays, such as woven reclining chaises and wooden dining chairs. These designs catapulted Van Beuren to wide acclaim after winning the MoMA Organic Design for Home Furnishing Award


Van Beuren founded the furniture label Domus, which became synonymous with well-crafted, modernist design that garnered fans both in Mexico and around the world. His furniture represents one of the most fruitful moments of furniture production in Mexico and has become an essential part of Mexican twentieth-century design history
