DESIGN BY RAMOS BASSOLS, 2023
For the Contorna collection, the designers Ramos and Bassols focus on the idea of the chair as a micro architecture in wood, lightweight and harmonious. Sinuous lines and fine surfaces delineate its contours, whereas the minimalist design is given warm appeal by the solidity of natural or stained ash wood. Elegant and contemporary, Contorna reinterprets the art of cabinet-making from an industrial perspective, since the individual pieces of solid wood are machined by a robot and finished by hand. Contorna is available in a chair and armchair version, with wood seat.
The study Ramos Bassols was founded in 2004 by David Ramos Tarrès (Terrassa, 1969) and Jordi Bassols Borrell (Barcellona. 1976).
