FONTAL LOUNGE CHAIR
About the ProductFontal chair is a light, warm and likeable chair which is luxurious in the true sense of the world.This project was born from the desire to recuperate rattan as a noble material and the rich handicraft tradition. Oscar Tusquets Blanca has tried to give a new appearance to a century-old technique which 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.
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.
