The Carnaval chair that got us dreaming about Carnaval

Carnaval Chair is a rocking chair far from ordinary. This piece of furniture is all in wood and cords.  Thr visual motion generated by the twisting of the structure’s surface. This way, the user of the chair generates the motion.

The inspiration behind the design of this chair was Carnaval, a celebration that has its origins in Portugal and Brazil. The wood used for the chair is an allegory to nature and color as expression.

In addition, people who buy this chair are able to customize it. For example, by choosing the materials: the kind of wood, the color in the frame and the cords.

The customization process was thought as a metaphor for the rituals behind the choices of color, material and texture in Brazilian Carnaval.

Finally, the designer, Guido Lanari, wanted to translate the festive spirit that identifies Carnaval. We actually think he was quite successful.
