First debut as a prototype during the “Siza Pavilion for Camerich” in 2019 CIFF, the Baiana Chair embodies what Alvaro Siza envisioned in a chair: A design that is light in weight yet structurally sound. It is simplistic, yet intricate in detail. It is timeless, yet original in concept. It is a chair that is accessible to the public, not just because of its affordability, but also because of its ability to adapt into various interior environments.
Alvaro Siza has many iconic furniture creations tracing as far back as the 1960s. In 2017, for the Salone de Mobile Milano exhibition, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect designed the Karumi bamboo series created by master Japanese craftsman using Bamboo, for the world renowned French fashion house Hermes.
As the saying goes, “the devil is in the details,” holds candid for the Baiana Chair collection. The Baiana frame is constructed solid Ash wood using traditional mortise and tenon joint construction technics, withstanding up to an impressive 100 kg. The Baiana is light in weight and minimalistic, with a highly adaptable design making it suitable for various interior settings.
