Cadeira Oslo / chair

Cadeira Oslo
Cadeira Oslo

The Oslo chair came from the idea of using a chair upside down, putting the feet up and the back on the floor. From this, a design was created in which the chair’s back resembles its legs, giving the impression that the bottom of the chair is upwards.
Inspired by the Scandinavian design, its drawing is simple and functional with shapes that provide a pleasing visual balance. The colors convey joy and joviality, and the parts of wood (Eucalyptus) grant a cozy feeling. The name of the chair refers Norway’s capital, one of the countries where the Scandinavian design emerged.
