... metaphor of sail that gets lost in the horizon!

In the second edition of the Lisbon Roots exhibition, 11 renowed Architetcs and Interior Designers, had the opportunity to give wings to their creativity and together with several Portuguese furniture makers, created 11 different proposals of Chairs inspired by the same theme, the Lisbon Roots.

Pura Cal in partnership with JMS, a Portuguese company with 40 years of experience in the production of chairs, has the pleasure to present "ALÉM MAR" at Lisbon Roots exhibition that took place during Homeing in Lisbon.

The simplicity of the design and the nobility of the material used, gives to "ALÉM MAR" a lightness and an unique aesthetic. Rosewood and traditional cane, build structure. Underneath it sits a textile fabric like a tensioned sail, and a cushion overlays natural linen and feathers.

Metaphor of sail that is lost in the horizon, Beyond Tagus, Beyond Sea (Além Mar).

Metaphor of sail that returns, full of different materials, aesthetics and cultures.

Lisbon, an amalgam of all these exchanges and estates, where wood from Vera Cruz crosses with African straws and Indian fabrics.

Under looks and aesthetics that come and gom they blen and create a unique legacy that transforms everyday.
