About the ProductThis project is born from the desire to recuperate rattan as a noble material and the rich handicraft tradition in our country in its treatment.Oscar Tusquets Blanca has tried to give a new appearance to a century-old technique. This has been achieved by replacing the traditional corbelling and ties as linking elements for the twinning of one cane to the next. With this innovative solution he has achieved a flexible but resistant structure that weighs very little. A light, warm and likeable chair which is luxurious in the true sense of the world. Fontal, designed by Oscar Tusquets Blanca, is a dining armchair featuring a structure made of natural, peeled and tinted rattan, 32 mm/1.26 thick. The seat is made of natural and tinted wicker. It also features plastic caps.
The BrandMore about this Brand
La Exportadora del Mimbre was founded by lawyer Miguel Laso Tortosa in 1960 to export wicker products. Tortosa had identified a gap in the European market for products made from natural materials. He brought in the wicker from the nearby region of Cuenca and it was handcrafted into baskets, folding screens, cradles and toys. A few years later, armchairs and loungechairs were added to the company’s range.
