The most remarkable
Portuguese chair design
An award-winning piece,
reborn in wood.
Aged for 70 years
The value of an object it’s not only in the object itself, but the history that’s behind it. And this story begins in 1953 with Gonçalo Rodrigues dos Santos, a pround Master Craftsman…
It’s in the details that one can find the differences in high quality craftmanship. The fine assembly of all elements holding everything together, can only be admired up close.
To achieve this, we have combined a master craftsman care for every last detail with the efficiency of technology, and with them, we fully trust our production.
For us to be able to create premium pieces we follow the highest criteria in quality and sustainability. All our wood is FSC certified and only natural fruit-based oils are applied, allowing the wood to breathe, as it should.
Design that speaks for itself.
Seat & Back
Straw is a natural product that is not dyed or bleached. Irregularities and variations in colour are part of this natural material that is processed all by the hands of local artisans.
Having the background history that made the Portuguese Roots chair what it is today, it makes us proud that it has found its place into the fashion and design museum – MUDE – permanent collection, as well as into the office of the Portuguese President and Prime Minister residence. It has also been recognized with one of the best design awards in the world.
It makes all the difference for an artist the type of paint and canvas he is given to work with.
