Silllón Dos, one of the finalists of the 2009 "El Sofa Latino" competition, organized by MANIFESTO - Universidad de Palermo. The competition asked for a piece of furniture - chair, chaise, couch and the such - that somehow reflected the Latin America. What we applied was the striking duality there is between low and high lifestyles in Latin America. This is specially visible in architecture, with state-of-the-art concrete marvels that can be found within a 10 minute walk from the closest slum.
Built from a cold steel rod geometric skeleton and bearing a huge, cozy leather cushion. "Dos" also means "two" in spanish, hence the name.
