CONTEXT
 
In a very diversified XXI century, design, appears as a tool that focus on a large variety of problem solving in the most distinctive fields, it is, therefore, strongly connected with society. It’s precisely this kind of relation, that is growing stronger each day, that made the SHELTER project become both a desktop and a chair with “Being & Reflecting” concerns.
Assuming that we face a decaying society, mostly because of economic and political reasons, and knowing that the intimate environmental space - capable of providing reflection and productivity – is part of the answer for the problem.
It is an opportune time for design to re-think the objects that create and equip these spaces, allowing this way the natural arise of new artefacts.
SHELTER PROJECT
 
In a modernist world, where the search for the authored design defines the new demand of a market increasingly elitist, the SHELTER preoject, inserted in the Being & Reflecting context appears as a bold response.
Made with sustainable and ecological materials, such as wood, aluminum, leather and cork, designed with constructive principles based on simple fitting methods, which allows the mix between the meaning of woodwork and the design innovation.
 
The name SHELTER reffers to the inherent characteristics of the intimate environmental space that must be displayed.

The SHELTER Chair and Desktop have their own personality, and so, knowing how something will be used is essential to her. The objects were designed in order to offer the most various positions to whom desires to use it, assuming that many activities can be here undertaken.

Being objects that must offer comfort and welfare to the user, materials such as the cork work for their texture – which appeals to the sensations and feelings – but also because of the comfort and functionality (such as in the desktop)
