Each module of the sofa receives a combination of special foams capable of making your sitting experience more pleasant. In addition to the use of Italian elastic belts and combinations of foams depending on the use, we value and invest in the tactile feel of our pieces. To make the product comfortable before sitting, we use special types of foam for the finish. Hiper Soft is the foam used to give a pleasant touch to the armrest and backrest (image), in addition to preserving the aesthetic lines and proportion of the product indefinitely. In the seat, we use Ultracel, as the last layer of foam to provide more durability, comfort, and stability when sitting.
We value using certified and quality wood. In addition to the aesthetic beauty of licensed native raw materials, density is an important factor in choosing the wood species we select. This physical characteristic makes it possible to increase the quality of the finishes, improve the precision of the cuts and guarantee excellent durability of the furniture. We know that having a quality raw material available is not enough to have a good finished product, that's why we seek to work only with woodworkers who have dedicated their lives to working with wood. Excellent professionals who have know-how capable of substantially transcending technical limitations and making possible the development of each of the products developed in wood.
All of our products have a creative universe
behind each piece. Here you can see a little of what
inspires our designers to design our furniture.
hinterland of Minas Gerais - Brazil
“Puxava uma brisbisa. O ianso do vento revinha com o cheiro de alguma chuva perto. E o chiim dos grilos ajuntava o campo, aos quadrados. ”
Grande Sertão: Veredas, p. 33.
The Chiim sofa, almost a cacophony due to phonetic force, is the result of immersion in the lexicon of Guimarães Rosa, specifically in the work Grande Sertão: Veredas. Diplomat, doctor, and miner (born in the state of Minas Gerais), Rosa would become the exponent of what was later called transregionalism, by the literary critic, Antônio Cândido. The modernist author brilliantly overcomes the pictorial regionalist aspect and gives vent to a human, metaphysical and psychological narrative. Using the masterful regional cover of the backlands of Minas Gerais, he spells out the work of neologisms and prosaic language. The silence, the moment, and the simplicity of the scene that gives Chiim the light, form a synesthetic connection with the aspect of usability and aesthetics that the piece seeks to represent. Simple forms associated with quality materials, seek to lead the user to a full experience through simplified forms, a true stage of pure encounters.
