The unbearable lightness of being
Joinery of the highest calibre, raw materials –hardwood- and Portuguese design and innovation produced by a partnership of designers, architects and young talents is the nexus between these fabulous pieces of furniture.
A collection of signed, numbered and handcrafted products ensuring the uniqueness of each piece and excelling in simplicity, purity of lines, versatility and sophistication.
Traditional joinery techniques are employed in the assembly of this table made of solid French oak. “The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth”.
The wood is however worked in order to remove visual and structural weight, emphasizing its elegance and lightness: “the absolute absence of burden causes … to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth… and become only half real”.
As on the dinning table, this elegantly built chair is produced in solid French oak unraveling a sempiternal dialogue between weight and lightness: elevated by its design, attached to the ground by its material: “What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness?”
