Brazilian contemporary wicker natural armchair

About

A clump of grass, a bush, which moves in the wind and envelops its inhabitant.
This was the inspiration for creating the Savana armchair, made in Wicker, traditional and natural material of the Brazilian furniture, widely used in the 70's and 80's, but whose origin goes back to the time of ancient Egypt.
Massive and totally handmade, without any use of metal structure or wood, the Wicker branches are curved in the water and then glued one by one, forming the "tree trunk" that serves as the base; And the backrest, which projects upwards in the shape of a shell, giving protection and shelter to the user.
The sensation is of sitting inside a clump, completely enveloped, in an atmosphere of introspection; Almost of reflection. The cushion, made of long synthetic fur in Black, refers to the great animals of the African Savannah, who seek in the hot days a shade to protect themselves from the scorching sun.
Savana demonstrates the intention and versatility of the designer Tiago Curioni in creating pieces with whatever is available and available for use. The ability to change materials, discovering their characteristics, method of work and limitations, leads their work always beyond expectations, culminating in a playful and surprising result.
Limited to 5 units, there are still 4 Savanas available.

About the Maker

Tiago Curioni is an architect and product designer with a studio (found in 2010) based in São Paulo, Brazil. As a product designer, Tiago began creating pieces such as benches, chairs, tables, and chandeliers for his own interior design projects. With a clean, but yet strong touch, his workpieces are designed to highlight the materials and colors used. Since he prefers to test new materials in each collection and to bet on unknown solutions, his products do not have a defined identity resulting in a diversified product line. Although he has less than 3 years as a product designer, he already won prestigious awards such as; Salão Design (Bento Gonçalves, Brazil), Bronze in 2016 and Gold in 2017 at the A'design Award (Como, Italy). In addition, he received an honorable mention at the International Design Awards (Los Angeles, USA) and was selected by German Award. His work was exhibited in most prestigious and recognized museums from São Paulo, and the Velvet Chair and Black Sheep are part of the set-up of the well-known chair's museum, in Rio de Janeiro. Currently, his work can be found all over Brazil in high-end specialized furniture retailers that carefully select their pieces.
