This surprising photo was taken in an interesting store, Vinçon, in the Passeig de Gràcia in Barcelona. It deserves a visit.
1941 Vinçon opens its doors to the public
In 1941 Enrique Levi and Hugo Vinçon founded their first shop in Paseo de Gracia named Enrique Levi, which was later changed to Regalos Hugo Vinçon.
Ties between the Amat family and the business began a year later when Jacinto Amat was hired as a sales assistant.
1973 La Sala Vinçon opening
Since this space was opened works of artist, architects and designers from all around the world are displayed.
1995 The national design prize
Vinçon has been awarded significant prizes over the years.
1997 Online shop
Vinçon acquired the http://www.vincon.com domain although we did not launch the website until mid 1998. The design concept was kept simple and functional and has evolved over the years to the point of becoming Vinçon’s second shop.
