Wood and technology form a passionate Alliance when they’re used with an open mind. Thanks to the possibilities that technology offers us, we can increase the potential of wood from a structural and esthetic point of view. Wood treated as plywood permits us to curve it without losing its characteristics, attaining very fine, highly resistant boards or seamless joins. Technology doesn’t just help us to develop new forms, it also enables us to investigate and evolve without betraying all that makes wood such a unique material.
Behind this evolution lies a curiosity to explore the limits of wood as a material and the security that comes with harmonizing traditional methods with new technological processes. We unite the best of a remarkable history with the constant search for excellence.
Ronda is developed from a highly characteristic central element, an oak plywood frame that’s just 12 millimeters thick; build from two pieces that fit together seamlessly, the result of intense structural research. Originally, this emblematic and elegant chair was made of one single material – plywood – with a four-legged base, but it has undergone successive evolutions and has been combined with other materials to enhance its adaptability without sacrificing comfort or its unmistakable features.
Ronda is available with four wooden legs, or a metal tube base, with a steel swivel or solid wood or sled steel central base, or with a four-star swivel aluminum base with self-return system. The frame is available in varnished oak plywood, or completely upholstered with fabric or leather. An additional version features an oak plywood frame and an upholstered cushioned seat.
