Pindá Lounge Chair
The Pindá Armchair was designed at a time of introspection and total relaxation over a period of a trip, where observing, surfing, and disconnecting from everyday life were the main aims.
We continue with our ever-present concept of reuse in the choice of raw material. Now we chose the beautiful Perobinha do Campo wood.
The piece was built entirely in a handcrafted way. Its design once again has the start on ergonomics, ie, a correct, comfortable posture. All seat design, armchairs, chairs, and benches I’ve done over nearly 40 years, always started from ergonomics.
Once achieved the desired posture of the body for comfort, what interests me most in this piece is the sensuality of touch, something very good to please and feel how much you can achieve in terms of finish and sweetness in a piece of wood. Lots of manual work, lots of sandpaper.
The result was achieved; the piece is beautiful and very sensual. Tempting.
The stings or spines in the back is something that I had to do (Pindá in Tupi) because the temptation has to be some way guarded, as nature itself wisely makes almost at everything that is a temptation.
For your demanding execution, we used traditional woodworking techniques for solid wood, and a carnaúba wax finishing.
Part of the back of the chair is darkened, this dark is only a reference to the pinda-una (black sting in Tupi), ie, one sea urchin that is found in the rocks near the breaking waves.
