Respecting traditional values ​​but inspired by the needs of the modern world, three teams (Dizainăr x Lana x Photoliu) worked together to find the balance between old and new, between traditional and contemporary.
The structure of the chair is designed by Dizainăr (Mihnea Ghilduş, Alexandru Ioniţă) to fit the texture made by Lana Dumitru and consists of a triangular seat, three legs with round section and a narrow backrest with a trapezoidal shape that rests on the seat and on the back leg. The formal decisions are inspired by the Romanian tradition of furniture construction, while ergonomics, execution, finishes and details are adapted to our time. Some of the contemporary elements are the upholstery (the traditional furniture is not upholstered), wood edges, angled to give the appearance of a thinner top and making wood joints with the precision of numerically controlled tools.
