Upholstered velvet chair with footrest
Ottiu – Beyond Upholstery is a brand of upholstered furniture born in Porto, Portugal in 2014. It was created to answer the question: are seating products only for meant for seating? Ottiu pieces are more than their function; they are designed to become the center of attention while creating a harmonious union with the decorative elements that surround them.
As with all Emotional Brands creations, Ottiu lives to achieve excellence in its production and total client satisfaction. We only develop a high-end brand when we are able to assure the best possible production for our designs, which is why we partnered with a company with decades of experience and proven know-how in the manufacturing of upholstered furniture. Each piece, made by specialized craftsmen, is treated like a unique work of art: from the foundation in a solid wood structure to the last details of the high-quality finishing. Conceptually, our products materialize an accessible and comfortable escape from the cosmopolitan chaos, recreating at home a gratifying retreat.
CONCEPT: OTIUM… YOUR LEISURE TIME
The metropolis spirals around its axis, in a cyclical way, and its dwellers lose all perception of time and the world that surrounds them. The time to enjoy the pleasures of life is so slim that leisure has become more precious than precious metals or stones. It is a conscious effort employed by the common philosopher to stop the perpetual tick-tock of a clock in an attempt to break away.
Combining opposites, such as decadence and lavish beauty, is a gift possessed only by the great masters of cinema, like the namesake of this chair. The Visconti bar chair is given an unexpected and ethereal life by its ravishing grey shade on the top of its walnut feet and brass accents.
