Tavares Chair

Wow, when I saw this at ICFF I thought it would be way more expensive than it is (because usually all super modern sleek chairs command a hefty price tag).

Developed by request of a landmark Lisbon restaurant bearing the same name, the Tavares chair is an object of thoughtful geometric lines, a “Shell” as a chair. Built in black steel, its forms reveal the the simplicity of an object that integrates with its surrounding architecture defining a common space identity.

Dimensions: H25/14.6 x W22.8 x 28 in (H64/37 x W58 x D71 cm)
