Canela Armchair by Renata Gutierrez and James Rowland

Home > Winners > #58192


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Canela

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Armchair

INSPIRATION:
Canela was conceived as an elegant solution to a traditional armchair which combines a delicate yet strong structure with warm and comfortable upholstery.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Canela was designed to be a comfortable yet striking and elegant piece of furniture. The introduction of copper against the dark wood helps to set it apart visually.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Canela's dimensions allow it to be used in a number of ways, permitting the user to sit normally or side on. The height and angle of the armrests also help to accommodate the body in both positions.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was conceived and realised in Paraty, Brazil 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Canela was handmade from solid hard woods using traditional woodworking methods.The traditional joinery was combined with modern minimal design to create interesting yet functional details.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 715mm x Depth 733mm x Height 797mm

TAGS:
Knót artesanal, armchair, solid wood, handmade

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The main area of research for Canela was in relation to its dimensions in order to achieve the greatest degree of comfort. Various angles were contemplated for a range of seating positions before selecting what was considered to be the optimum setup. From there a number of mock ups were created and tweaked before creating a full size prototype preceding the final model.

CHALLENGE:
The joinery posed a slight challenge in that it was a requirement to maintain a delicate structure in order to achieve a light and minimal appearance. A combination of finger joints and wedged mortise and tenons were used, these not only provided Canela with a rigid and highly resistant structure but they are also interesting and attractive details in themselves.
