INSPIRATION:
Inspired on the scandinavian style and with sustainable solutions, the armchair is a tribute to my grandmother, who was in love with handmade works, reflected on the backseat. She also loved nature and was short, that is why the armchair was made in a sustainable way and its design is lower, thought to be easier to use, welcoming and comfortable.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Cecilia is an armchair in a sustainable way, the idea is to give new use to materials that could go to the trash. The design of its structure was designed touse pressed pieces of wood from reuse (left overs). The back, made of left over fabric, tied to a base creating an aesthetic volume and providing comfort. The seat, made of leather from discard, can receive amendments and details, its made it unic. The design of its low and reclining structure its an invitation to rest.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research was made about types of sustainable and recycled materials, that could work in an aesthetic and functional way.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to use left over fabric for the backseat and left over wood for the structure. For the backseat we used a flexible base where small pieces of fabric were tied, creating an aesthetic volume an comfort while in use. For the structure, I designed larger feet and seat, that allowed me to use left over wood slats pressed.
