Let’s talk about Una, furniture formed by a dining table and the chairs due to this. The table is made of white oak, with its cylindrical and wide characteristics legs. This, goes with the chair, where in this case is upholstered. It can be customized in natural wood or laquered in black.
Following this cylindrical form, it’s shown the Puru table. Its name, which means “pool” in Japanese, creates this leap between this two materials, wood and stainless steel. Creating this way reflections, as the water does, and if it works like a mirror. Connecting this way between them the materials, seeing that one would be not there without the other.
Putting aside the cylinder, it borns the Nido chair. It makes a game between the juxtaposition of forms, the curves and the planes. The form of the seat is like an egg, being this upholstered. Nido’s support are made of walnut tree or white oak. The form of cross brings rigidity and stability without being only a unique piece and being adapted and comfortable to the seat.
Finishing with all of this products, we talk about Totem. We all know what is a totem. So they remove it to another context. It is formed between two stackable stools and one part on a base made of concrete. Saving space, you have perfectly two stools and a table, or just a decoration element.
