A nest for each little bird
Rafa García has added a dining chair to the Nido product family with a design that is as simple as its predecessor. Just like the original lounge chair, a nest, serving as a refuge and protection for a large number of species has been the inspiration.
The seat or “nest” is supported by a hand-crafted ash wood frame or metal feet in a black-matte finish. The upper part provides “branches” into which the comfortable seat is fixed.
Its small size turns this piece into an excellent alternative for dining tables or a side chair for any workspace, where the space limits are the key for building an environment.
The chair’s versatility can be found in the feet options: two ash wood types (available in 19 different colours), a metal version in a black epoxy finish or a swivel and height-adjustable variant.
The upholstery is available in two versions: tightly tailored or quilted. The chair’s contour is highlighted by black piping, ideal for creating a two tone effect.
The Nido family of chairs is a warm and cozy refuge for everyone.

Product family


Nido, Spanish for nest, means home to a number of species and inspired Rafa García to create this small armchair.

The seat or “nest” is supported by a hand-crafted ash wood frame. The upper part provides “branches” into which the comfortable seat is fixed. The wood is available in a wide array of stains: from natural tones to vibrant colours like green or orange.

As an alternative, this year Rafa presents a new range of armchairs with metal feet in a matte finish. Choose from black, grey or brown.

The upholstery is available in two versions: with a zip or with piping. The version with a zip is soft and loose and enables the seating area to be removed. However, the version with piping is fixed and pulled tight. Both the zip and piping are always in black.
The back and sides of the upholstered area are tailored to show off the chair’s lines whereas the seating area is soft and cosy.

As the chair has a zip or piping to separate the seat from the back and sides, it is possible to choose two different fabrics. Please take care when specifying which area should be upholstered in which fabric.
