For the creation of Sincretismo’s Partera chair, EWE Studio looked deep into the past and found its inspiration from the shape of a birthing chair commonly used in Mexico, while making their own abstraction.
The chair sits low with integrity on top of its two base legs, the dramatic character and expression is the result of a radical volume that holds a wide horizontal extended seat intersected by a long perpendicular backrest.
The chair embraces the combination of curved and angular surfaces. The shapes and textures are created with basic tools by hand and finished on its surface with an irregular carved skin, built out of parota wood with chisel and chainsaw by the expert hands. Finally, the wood has been burnt and sealed creating a deep, dark, rich color. The result is simple yet dramatic.
The Partera Chair in is also available in Bronze, created as a unique piece for the exhibition ‘The Chair’ by The Future Perfect.
