Silla 8
First Silla 8 prototype ever
The first rough pre-series of 6 units of Silla 8 was the Tregebov, as it was commissioned by Pablo Tregebov upon seeing the first prototype
Silla 8 is the result of an exercise in which flat plywood sheets are curved under pressure and in a simple way (without machinery), using different structures as support. Instantly and without molds, this process generates what end up being seats and backrests.
The resulting pieces consist of two frames joined together and stripped of any decorative element. Together with the backrest and seat, they create a comfortable, light, and uniquely designed chair.
The final version is made of solid koto wood and poplar plywood, making it ultralight.

To enhance its visual uniqueness, I collaborated with the artist Claudia Valsells, with whom we developed a series of color combinations that reflect her exploration of beauty. The chair conveys the tactile nature of the artwork through the palette; because what can be touched is tangible and brings us closer to its reality.
Each chair is painted in more than one color to emphasize the meaning of each when contrasted with the others.

7 Sillas 8 is the result of a collaboration that is not normally seen in the world of art and design; it is a dialogue between disciplines that converges on a common and unlikely final point for each of the participants and, ultimately, an excuse between two professionals that ends with a good friendship.
