Aero Armchair, is shaped by hand by a skilled cabinetmaker to give a unique and personal touch to each piece of furniture. The leather belts are handmade by a craftsman who makes horse saddles and the buckles are cast silver alloy, it's saddle leather belts intend to emulates the belts of those biplanes that crossed the air in the 20s with their innovative and daring spirit, the wood finished by a cabinetmaker gives context to the arms as the supports and propellers of stakes aircrafts.
The back and seat angles of this saddle provide a tremendously relaxed sitting style.
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.
