After the release of his Avoa Chair and Arauto, the Brazilian designer Pedro Paulø-Venzon has recently unveiled the Pudica Chair — another marvellously simple, elegant and throne-like chair design. Pedro explains to us his inspiration and referents for the development of this new chair:
The Pudica Chair is an artefact that seeks syncretism between the rationalist style of the early twentieth century and the Brazilian colonial experience, embodied in the severity and economy of its forms and in the rise of a possible transcendence. Containment of an excess that poses as a brand, the piece takes up “Brazilian” inheritances in the form of a contemporary displacement: it adheres to memory’s time and transforms it in a “differend”, thus establishing delicate yet sensitive readings.
A great reflexion for a fantastic result, because if the minimalism had a throne, it might very well be the Pudica Chair.
