Concept

The architect Josep Torres Clavé created this armchair in 1934, drawing inspiration from the traditional models used in Ibiza (cadirats). The armchair was used to furnish the prestigious Pavilion of the Spanish Republic at the International Exposition in Paris in 1937, together with works as Picasso’s Guernica, Alexander Calder’s Mercury Fountain and Miró’s Catalan Farmer.
The armchair combines oak structure and knitted string.
The beauty of its materials and its extraordinary comfort makes it particularly suitable for hotels, reception areas, lounges and libraries or reading areas.
Permanent Collection of the Museum of Design in Barcelona, 1994.
