Casta armchair by estudi{H}ac for Sancal

October 21st, 2013 by retail design blog

estudi{H}ac presents a small armchair based on a castanet, one of the most emblematic Spanish instruments: the image of a lady clapping together two halves of clam-shaped wood is famous the world over. Just as two halves of clam-shaped wood are clapped together with a castanet, the armchair’s curved metal structure is made of two elements that have been welded into place.

The Casta’s light structure is a radical departure from traditional thick, padded solutions for an armchair. By using a technologically advanced fabric, even the need for elastic or leather webbing has been eliminated. The cushions have been integrated into the cover itself to provide the comfort you would expect from a Sancal product. As the structure, in part, is provided by the fabric, this product is only available in Omega by Gabriel.

The metal structure is in a matte, textured finish to which warm, smooth ash wood armrests provide a contrast and remind us of the castanet’s wooden touch. The structure and armrests are available in black, light grey or brown. A piece race, pure and swing! Elegant and emphatic as the sound of the castanets.
