My name is Paul Neves and I am one of the designers of GUD Conspiracy [ http://www.gudconspiracy.com ]; a design studio, established by me and Alexandre Kumagai, based in Porto, Portugal.
We want to share with MOCOLOCO the Kundera chair, one of our newest products.
Kundera is a chair designed by us for the brand WEWOOD – Portuguese Joinery and was recently presented at The Oporto Show 2012 in Alfândega do Porto. The Kundera chair will integrate the 2013 collection of WEWOOD [ http://wewood.eu ].
A dialectic between weight and lightness is established by the chair: on the one hand, the design elevates it, on the other, the weight of the solid wood makes it sit closer to the ground. “What shall we choose then? Weight or lightness?”
The seat, made in solid oak, frees the chair from the structure; the seat panel is actually the structuring element of the chair – the tenon joints are left visible to emphasize that.
The profile of the legs as well as the arm and back beams are smoothed out thanks to the chamfers in the edges, communicating lightness to the whole. The same is used in the front and back edges of the seat panel to achieve a similar result.
