Researching the limits of technology and natural forms and using wood-based as a work platform, we've designed the parts with extreme curvatures but limited by wooden plank possibilities, getting pieces without wastage and trying to maintain a serene aesthetic criteria to conclude the pieces without too much joints. We've tryed to harmonize everything together once assembled and polished with maximum sensitivity. We use sustainable materials and environmentally friendly from its origin to the finishes to culminate this finest work.
Working together with new Barcelona members of Thelos design team has been instrumental for carrying out this project and get to make a chair with modern and striking aesthetic with a warm touch of organic shapes, to play and balance these two aspects to the limit of the imagination. It's a very special piece that need to be in special places, like a famous art picture deserves the best museum or the better owner.
