LATINA LOUNGE Chairis made of steel with a lightly curved silhouette inspired by the natural curves of the Latin woman. It was created for interiors and fits well into open-air spaces, providing a touch elegant and modern. The chair offers a highly durable product & is adaptable to the most extreme climates around the world due to its high resistant steel & will maintain its integrity for up to 50 years.
The idea behind the design is simply to recycle and convert left over construction material. Standard measurements are 1.22m x 2.44m & 1/4 inch cut a width of 0.61m. Through the use of curves and straight lines, the design finds shape with a singular sheet of steel. The result: two chairs per sheet without wasting material on cuttings, providing a very efficient manufacturing process.
Its two continual elements of support and weight give it great stability for two people. The cantilevered chair with light angles provides a comfortable position to its user in multiple postures. From a profile view the chair seems to disappear, given its thin gauge and provides the illusion of the seated person being elevated and at the same time changes the common perception of the chair itself.
LATINA LOUNGE Chair can be enjoyed in myriad settings, coffee shops, hotels, homes, terraces, gardens and even public spaces due to its permanence. Its modular design permits multiple chairs to be aligned in the form of a sofa of variable lengths, widening its range of usages and allowing it to adapt to other spaces such as urban parks and airports. The glossy black color permits the chair to literally reflect its surrounding environment, provoking the question: what material is that – is it a mirror, is it glass? The sleek and elegant profile allow the chair to seamlessly fit into virtually any space. Given its simple characteristics, the chair can be covered with leather, fabrics & recycled plastics or rubber, allowing for personal touches to its new owner.
