Inspired by the audacious personality of Amelia Earhart and the flowing lines of her famous airplanes, this chair tries to inspire audacity and free thought by moving away from classic standards and creating a timeless style.
Incredibly comfortable and ergonomic this armchair has a fluidity of lines, which emulates the shape of airplanes from the mid-twentieth century in a compilation of materials that inspire warmth and modernity.The ergonomics of the armchair and the forms of the planes of the decades of the 20's and 30's were studied in depth.

Gerardo Ríos's artistry and craftsmanship is a symbiotic reflection of what he believes in and often finds inspiration on “the daring romance and adventures that we find in people, history and our natural environment”. Ríos’ artistic spirit is inherited from a lineage of artists dating back to his great-great grandfather, the world-renowned painter José MarÍa Velasco. Each piece of furniture, whether it is a chair, a divan, or a chaise lounge, should create a sense of harmony and provoke a sensual response with the person who experiences it.
