About the ProductThe sinuous silhouette of the table somewhat implies its name recalling a distant past as well as a tradition which is always starting point for innovation. Its legs of injected aluminum seem to flow smoothly just like the distinctive black ink strokes of shodō (Japanese calligraphy) and evoke organic elements either the neck of a crane or the waving stems of reed beds. Like Japanese letters, its elegance is based upon the balance between simplicity and delicateness. Each of its elements has been carefully studied in order to get a purer aesthetic and a harmonious structure which, however large (it can measure up to 3 metres long), it still feels substantially light. Just as the Grada collection, Falcata suggests once again a subtle game of perspective where the legs of irregular section play the main role. Despite the variety of sizes, shapes and finishes, its proportion remains unaltered. The same proportion can be found in the accurate fusion of tradition and modernity, expressed through a language which nurtures from collective memory and timelessness. Highly technological materials and systems converge and get mixed with reminiscences of the animal and plant kingdom, the exotic Japanese culture and the first inhabitants of a land called Iberia, until creating a perfectly homogenous blend and therefore, a unique piece.
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.
