The design shows a slight reminiscence of the art nouveau style that gives it a touch of timelessness. The ergonomic of its foaming results in being unique, creating an extremely comfortable armchair for relaxing and reading, with a classy and eloquent style.
Built entirely of solid wood of 3 species: ash, tzalam and sapelli, with a completely curved structure, practically no straight cut piece, it is finely formed by hand-molded rubber foam, upholstered in natural leather with contrasting color at the seams, which gives a personality to each piece of furniture.
Bio 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.
