UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The long lines stretched to the limit , were designed to give proportion to Comfort .You can experience a dimension of protection when you are seated on it and even feel the comfort just by watching it . It is build with one of the most noble material in nature, Wood with Natural oils.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
this Lounge Chair reaches a level of perfection and comfort in part because of the relationship between their angles but no doubt to the coast rays into a cone shape.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research is historical ,cultural and personal. I Used this idea With the aim of finding myself as a designer, both in the style of work and in the cultural references that identify what I do, How I do and why I do it . The best methodology was always to explain an idea through a drawing and that's how it started. Tto be honest, the research process had been absorbed during years of working with furniture and in particular with a strong influence attached to an emblematic chair of the late fifties in Portugal. The reason for the births of this project was not a specific survey for it, but rather years of field work that matured in me and lead me to this outcome . I used the most basic processes for design and prototyping by hand but also the 3D and robotic technology for the final product.

CHALLENGE:
Since the 50's the life of the Portuguese in general has crossed with the most emblematic chair ever designed in Portugal. As a result of this exhibition, Architects, designers and others have been recurring over the years, trying to recreate and adapt the chair based on the original lines. These are the original lines that have been part of my life since I was 15 years old and have been growing with me ever since. In this process of growth, the idea and concept were also evolving and maturing within me to the point of wanting to create the version that would increase further maintaining the initial simplicity. To achieve that, I went back to the most basic creative process, starting with a sketch in Charcoal, going through the manual prototype, 3D technology, CNC production processes until the assembly and finishing, also done by handmade.
