Assembled from nine pieces of wood, ‘Muros’chair’ by Spanish architects Domohomo is the product of a body of work centred around restoration, “where the majority of the elements are made with chestnut; structure, boardwalks, carpentries, coatings, etc.” say the architects.
“Of all that closeness with this material, emerges the desire to continue working with it and explore all its limits. In this way, the Muros’chair becomes a place of experimentation, where the hands of a local carpenter make possible what we had imagined.”
“Without doubt, the part that has presented greater difficulty in its manufacture has been the back.” Conventional solid chestnut was laminated into sheets of wood 2mm thick then bent with the desired curvature then glued around the profile.
“In this case, the back is also the armrests of the chair and it makes a comfortable seat, optimal for reading or to enjoy a good view.”
