FONTAL | Easy chair
Rattan easy chair with armrests
Designed by Oscar Tusquets, Fontal’s look reminds us of a traditional chair that has been given a new appearance, yet it maintains lightness, warmth and charm.
As its creator puts it “the project was born from the desire to take back rattan as a noble material, building on the rich tradition of craftsmanship in our country. To that end, I have tried to give this hundred-year-old technique a new look by substituting the traditional strutting and joint wrapping for a twinning technique which allowed connecting one reed to the next. Thanks to this innovative resource, I have created a flexible yet resistant structure that is so lightweight. The chair is light, warm, charming and luxurious in the true meaning of the word”.
