The Ruiseñor chair was designed with special care in ergonomic aspects, so the design can be really comfortable. To achieve this, we worked hard on the design of a good seat and back support using a scheme developed by Oscar Hagerman or many years.

These designs were created to be made by artisans, the carpentry is made in small artisan workshops.

We use legal tzalam wood, and the textile to weave the chairs is made in Mexico with local suppliers, for us, it is important to make a chair with special care and with respect to all the people who participate in the process. Canto artesanos only produce Hagerman designs.
