We like working with designers; it’s a way to connect our values with the perspectives of different creative minds. If one thing defines our evolution, it’s our commitment to design. This commitment has translated to numerous national and international prizes, like the 2007 National Design Prize, the most prestigious of all prizes awarded in our country to companies that consider design central to their innovation strategy.
Each year we also hold an international design competition aimed at young designers, this year we celebrated its 15th edition. It’s our way of strengthening the new values that will build the future.
Nub begins with an image from its designer’s childhood: her fascination with artisan wisdom of the women’s wooden lacemaking instruments in her native city. Ornamental and decorative, Nub defies convention and emerges as a collage formed from an unexpected combination of different elements from the repertoire of chairs: back, bases, cushions, colors… An invitation to be bold.
Nub is also the demonstration of an extraordinary woodworking. Each Nub piece is the result of a search for quality that begins with the cut and curve and continues right through to the polishing and final varnish.
Nub is available as a side chair, armchair and bench. The bases come in wood or metal; sled, four legs or a four-star central base. A wide range of lacquering and varnishing options permit personalization to each customer’s wishes and needs. A lumbar cushion and upholstered seat are also available to enhance the comfort of this piece.
A touching invitation
