La Fresca Chair

View all 10 Photos

Andalusia is well-known for a rich artistic history that brought some of the greatest creative minds, from Picasso to Velázquez, into the world – but little is known of the influence of the modest “silla andaluza,” or Andalusian chair. Its folk-art style and form are familiarly formulaic, with a simple wooden frame and back, and a seat made from woven reeds. Created by Damien Lopez of Leblume and Granada Perrero Studio, La Fresca is a modernization of this classic silhouette. The accent chair pays homage to tradition in the hand-woven technique, which continues along the back and arms to create a spare, geometric form. The juxtaposition of humble materials with the chair’s sleek modern shape makes for a beautiful and fascinating piece that showcases both culture and craft, past and present.

Lizzie

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
