Chaise Cuatro is made of three bent Wood parts for the chair and one for the ottoman. The inspiration from this chair comes from the 1956 Eames Lounge Chair. The chair is composed of a main bent plywood sheet that holds the leather cushions. The armrest and back support is made by a two-piece bent plywood shell that helps the main piece stay in place.
The manufacturing process for this chair starts with two different molds (one for the seat and one for the two pieces of the armrest and support as well as for the ottoman). Each bent piece is made of 28 tin layers of veneer glued together inside the molds and are let to dry for almost two weeks each before they are de-molded. Once this process is complete the final veneer is applied (in this case walnut). It’s a long process and each piece is carefully handmade.
