This new range of furniture by Design duo Estudio Persona is based on the aesthetic of their native Uruguay.
The furniture series is like a discussion flows between functionality and sculpture, product and narrative, in order to create furniture that speaks both to space and to the body. The duo chose a palette of muted colors, natural materials and matte finishes for the designs, which is non-typical for Latin America but that was the purpose.
The collection includes the Una set, comprising a large wooden dining table with thick cylindrical legs and an accompanying chair, in either all-black or maple. The chair’s backrest matches the form of the table legs, but flipped 90 degrees and upholstered in leather. It is propped up on a wooden dowel, forming a T above the horseshoe-shaped seat.
A cylinder also features in the Puru side table, joining the ends of a folded, stainless steel section. The support comes with a burgundy lacquer, left as untreated wood, or as a limited-edition marbled peach resin finish.
Also among the designs is the Nido chair, available in several colors. A curved leather-upholstered shell creates both seat and back, placed on a base made up of two timber panels intersected as a cross.
