The goal is to design a chair that merges minimalism, sustainability and durability, with an efficient manufacturing process and a timeless design, that reflects a new conceptualisation of the conventional seat.

The designers present a unique chair. The structure is built with only two plywood plates, bonded together through a specialized gluing process. Being entirely made of wood, the chair does not need hardware, metals or plastics; resulting in a final product that is more respectful with the environment.

The manufacturing process follows a series of meticulous steps that ensure efficiency and the best quality:
•⁠ ⁠Preparation of the plywood cores and veneers: the wooden plates are carefully selected and prepared for the pressing process.
•⁠ ⁠Pressing of the two plywood plates separately: The pieces are precisely pressed to ensure a solid, long-lasting joint.
•⁠ ⁠Machining and sanding of the components: Each chair component is accurately machined and sanded to achieve a smooth and uniform surface.
•⁠ ⁠Gluing of the pieces: A particular adhesive is applied to bond the plywood layers, ensuring a strong union.
•⁠ ⁠Final sanding: A final sanding is performed to remove any imperfections and achieve a smooth finish.
•⁠ ⁠Polishing: Finally, furniture polish is applied to enhance the natural beauty of the wood and to protect the chair.

With this carefully designed production process, they ensure that each chair meets their standards of quality and sustainability, while its timeless and durable design makes it a piece of furniture that will endure over time.

Their chair not only represents an advancement in terms of design and sustainability but also offers an unparalleled experience of comfort and durability. By using natural materials and efficient manufacturing techniques, they are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their products. Furthermore, its minimalist and timeless design ensures that it easily integrates into a variety of spaces and decorative styles, making it a smart investment and aesthetically pleasing addition to any home or commercial environment.

The designers maintain their commitment to continuous innovation and respect for the environment at every stage of the design and manufacturing process, with the vision of creating not only furniture but also a positive change in the interior design industry. With their chair, you don’t just sit; you immerse yourself in a experience of quality and environmental responsibility.
