10.10.14 - I was in Lisbon Design Show presenting the dining chair and table Laura. This is how they look like.

The Laura chair is a solid composition made of carefully sculpted elements, giving it a nostalgic and romantic feel, perfect for the dining room. It is the result of a close study of the evolution of forms and surfaces on western culture chairs. The shapes of its elements were defined in a balanced consideration of the past, the present and the future. Its elements are based in rectangular forms, then slighly arched, rounded or angled. This gives it a notion of belonging to the evolution but still having traces from the past, which is very important to give it a character that people can relate to and recognize.

The Serena Chair was designed for a iniciative of the Paredes Design Center and it aims to promote the value of design within the industrial municipality of Paredes and also to show the potential of portuguese woodworking.
Its parts are the result of a mix between craftmanship and advanced robotic (CNC) production technology.
The final object is an elegant, simple, ergonomical and stackable chair that is able to integrate any environment.
