This new furniture series by the design duo Estudio Persona is based on the aesthetics of their home country Uruguay.
The furniture series is like a discussion between functionality and sculpture, product and narrative, to create furniture that speaks to both space and body. The duo chose a palette of muted colors, natural materials, and matte finishes for the designs, which is not typical of Latin America, but that was the purpose.
The collection includes the Una set, consisting of a large wooden dining table with thick cylindrical legs and a matching chair in black or maple. The back of the chair corresponds to the shape of the table legs, but is turned by 90 degrees and covered with leather. It is propped up on a wooden dowel and forms a T over the horseshoe-shaped seat.
In the Puru side table there is also a cylinder that connects the ends of a folded stainless steel profile. The carrier comes with a burgundy-colored lacquer that remains as untreated wood or as a marbled peach resin finish in a limited edition.
The designs also include the Nido chair, which is available in different colors. A curved leather upholstered shell forms both the seat and the backrest, which is placed on a base made of two wooden crosses cut as a cross.
