INSPIRATION:
Is inspired by the period modernist and big names in the design of the time, like Lina Bo Bardi and Joaquin Tenreiro. As a basis, it uses lines inspired by the Cathedral of Brasilia, a work by Oscar Niemeyer, for this reason, it was named Oscarina. A combination of straight and hand-turned lines with noble and caracterist Brazilian materials such as wood and woven cane. The idea was to develop a chair with elements that point to a common identity in modernist furniture.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Using modernist lines and inspiration, Oscaria is Made by hand, to translates a Brazilian furniture face in the 50', when the constructive and material quality was the most important in a piece. The idea was use just two special and caracterist materials to compose this chair: wood and woven cane. The precepts of the old carpentry, having its parts glued, made one by one, it fuses the old and the new. Noble wood in its purest form.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A chair with a structure well worked in wood, using simple lines, which can be incorporated in various environments, bringing sophistication and lightness. Materializes the basic act of sitting.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research was done on the modernist period (big designers and materials used) and the way of artisanal production and we discovered that the constructive and material quality was the most important for a piece in this time. Than we research about materials, and we decided use just two: Wood and woven cane, so caracteristic of Brazil.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to fix the woven cane in the wooden channels. In an artisanal way, we used a string to fix it. Finally, we had the chair with anatomic design in woven cane with the comfort and safety that we desire.
