Boléia in Brazil is the name of a truck’s cabin, the place where the trucker lives when he is on the road. Boléia chair is made of Italian full-grain leather with organic, modernistic forms that draw a seat and backrest suspended in the air. The leather is supported by a simple orthogonal wooden structure. In dialogue, organic forms on the leather embrace and contrast with the wooden structure’s straight lines.
The wooden pieces, as well as the leather, are joint by brass screws. These screws, as well as the brass bars, have been tailor-made for Boléia chair.
The simple construction method was intended to be as straightforward and evident as possible. All of the chair’s construction elements are exposed, revealing the inherent aesthetics of materials and processes.
