A piece of furniture with minimalistic traces in a single volume – this armchair’s shape beautifully resembles the arms of a mother holding her child lovingly in her lap.

“Its linear volumetry, however, allows the sensation of being suspended by these arms” he adds.

Thought to be developed in fiberglass – its structure is a productive challenge, truly making it unique.

This alluring piece of furniture can further be covered in a range of fabrics and leather – without losing, in any way, the comfort that is particular to it.

Its seams were thought to give linearity to the piece, as well as to allow the tapestry to be made in a viable and careful way.

In addition – the gentle slope offers balanced ergonomics, a primary characteristic of this armchair.

Lateral curves that form the armrests, besides being an aesthetic aspect, also allow a rest for the shoulders.

Featuring a hollow space in the middle, this conceptual object could be utilized for a mélange of purposes such as a support for books while reading.

“The beauty of this piece is to offer those who use it – the sheer opportunity to redefine its form and consequently its function” says Coelho.
