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”.‎

Oscar Tusquets Blanca unveils the new Fontal stools for Expormim.‎
The lightness of rattan and the smoothly curved verticality of the new Fontal stools are ideal to complement bars, gastro-bar, restaurants, kitchen islands and waiting rooms.‎ The collection by Oscar Tusquets Blanca, which is composed of a chair, an upholstered chair, an armchair and a Oscar Tusquets Blanca unveils the new Fontal stools for Expormim dining armchair, ads now three new stools: a low barstool, a barstool and a high barstool.‎ The incorporation of these stools increases the functionality and elegance of Fontal collection.‎

Fontal was the first contemporary rattan collection launched by Expormim designed by the Spanish architect, painter and designer Oscar Tusquets Blanca.‎ Fontal derives from ‘fuente’ (‘source’ in Spanish) because as Tusquets explains “Expormim had decided to return to its origins, to rattan and to that technical know-how historically kept by local craftsmen”.‎

Oscar Tusquets helped us bring to life this collection which means a new beginning for us: “The project is born from the wish to recover rattan as a fine material and reclaim our country’s rich craftsmanship tradition.‎ I have tried to give a new look to an ancient technique replacing the brackets and bonds traditionally used as connecting elements by the twinning of one cane to the next.‎ Thanks to this innovative solution we have achieved a strong, flexible and lightweight structure.‎ This is how Fontal evolved into a warm, likeable and luxurious seat in the true sense of the word”.‎
