José Manuel Ferrero, of Estudi{H}ac, presents a small armchair based on a castanet, one of the most emblematic Spanish instruments: the image of a lady clapping together two halves of clam-shaped wood is famous the world over.

Just as two halves of clam-shaped wood are clapped together with a castanet, the armchair’s curved metal structure is made of two elements that have been welded into place.

The Casta’s light structure is a radical departure from traditional thick, padded solutions for an armchair. By using a technologically advanced fabric, even the need for elastic or leather webbing has been eliminated. The cushions have been integrated into the cover itself to provide the comfort you would expect from a Sancal product. As the structure, in part, is provided by the fabric, this product is only available in Omega by Gabriel.

The metal structure is in a matte, textured finish to which warm, smooth ash wood armrests provide a contrast and remind us of the castanet’s wooden touch. The structure and armrests are available in black, light grey or brown.

José Manuel Ferrero
Estudihac is led by Jose Manuel Ferrero who, after working intensively with Oscar Tusquets, created his own industrial and interior design studio. 2009 was his year: after being nominated in the Elle Deco International Designs Awards, the studio went on to receive two ADCV awards and a selection for the Delta awards for the legendary foundation ADI-FAD. The studio has been collaborating with Toyota Japan for years in the interior design of the iQ series. In the habitat sector, the studio’s career is booming - with projects for Vondom, Punt Mobles, Porcelanosa and Gandia Blasco. Casta is his second design for Sancal, following the highly successful range of Tea seats.
