Finalist in Salão Design 2015, Avoa is an extremely simple, sleek and smart chair designed by the Brazilian Pedro Paulø-Venzon, who caught up with us to explain his design:

The motivation for the development of the Avoa Chair is autotelic, the autonomous design discourse. The challenge was to think of an object as a quote, a resumption of the minimal elements that form a chair: small seat, economical design, and delicate balance.

Avoa does not remind a classic chair design, nor in its material or in the supposed absolute comfort. Instead of that, it plays between precision and deconstruction, with its rounded elements and its thin, elegant structure.
