Valuma is a portuguese design chair.
Inspired by the caravels of other times, it tells us a small part of history when Portugal was discovering new worlds.
Its shape is inspired by the hull of a caravel, where we applied a cross-sectional cut, leaving in sight the inside.
From the emptiness emerges a front panel, inspired by the iconic Portuguese filigree, symbolizing the culture, customs of a people and the arts of man.
During the day, the hollow interior allows the shadow from the front panel to be projected creating curiosity in the observer.
At night, Valuma gets a second life, lighting up and projecting light abroad.
