Muros’chair is an object that is the result of a rehabilitation approach that we develop in domohomo architects, where the majority of the elements are made with chestnut; structure, boardwalks, carpentries, coatings, etc.
Of all that closeness with this material, emerges the desire to continue working with it and explore all its limits. In this way, the Muros’chair becomes a place of experimentation, where the hands of a local carpenter make possible what we had imagined.
This is a handicraft work where they are assembled nine pieces of wood while setting up the Muros’chair.
Without doubt, the part that has presented greater difficulty in its manufacture has been the back. In a first moment, is part of a section of conventional solid wood of chestnut and it laminates, making sheets of wood about 2 mm of thickness. Then it proceeds to make a pattern with the desired curvature and, finally, gluing all the sheets around the profile.
In this case, the back is also armrests of the chair and it makes a comfortable seat, optimal for reading or to enjoy a good view.
