Description

Dedicated to Yara, the chair began with the experimenting with different ways of working the solid wood in the studio. The circular legs and the back leg were made of solid steambent wood. In this technique, the pieces are submerged in water for two weeks until they get into a steambox for softening momentarily and then be bent manually with help of handmade jigs. After drying, the residual stress of the wood changes leaving a new form imprinted on it, forever changing its structure.
This process makes it possible to achieve more daring, sculptural shapes, increasing its resistance and respecting the natural plasticity of wood. The final set features a composition of light curves that allow comfort through flexing. The chair was executed in freijó solid wood boards and finished with natural oil.

About PROSA Visit Showroom →

Prosa is dedicated to the research and development of solid wood furniture. The studio uses classic naval carpentry techniques for the execution of its furniture, where strength and durability meet curves and organic shapes. Our curved pieces are steam bent, our joinery are traditional and at all stages the craftsman dialogs carefully with the wood grains to decide the cutting directions. Our products are made thinking about nature, the people who inhabit it and the future of the interaction between both. Our creative process is organic: on the way to materializing the shapes of the drawings, we stop at each step to observe the materials we use, how they behave, how they look, how they respond to our action. Throughout all the stages we give ourselves the freedom to change ways, to disrespect the design, give chance an opportunity and accept its risks. Often our mistakes are the source of our best ideas. We are not bound by any method or rule. For us, organic creation is only possible when we are open to possibilities that do not present themselves, but happen. It is only possible by taking the most difficult paths and trusting that it is precisely the difficulty that generates the best ideas.
