de Armas Chair

Raul de Armas 1991

Wanting his chair “to be classic, not classical,” Raul de Armas drew on the principles of modern architecture and a strict geometric logic. Despite its generous proportions, the de Armas chair is graceful and visually light, with flush connections and gently tapering legs and armrests.
