Reissue of the Catalana armchair by Germán Rodriguez Arias, member of the Mobles 114 Classic Collection
Catalan Armchair 1942, designed by Germán Rodríguez Arias, and re-edited by Mobles 114
During his Chilean stage, Germán Rodríguez Arias met Pablo Neruda, with whom he would maintain a long friendship. The poet would commission him to build the various houses he built during his stays in Chile. Rodríguez Arias designed, among others, the house La Chascona and the expansion of Isla Negra, two of the poet's homes. The Catalana armchair was part of the furniture that the architect and designer designed for Isla Negra. He made it with native wood from Chile and vogue, taking inspiration from traditional Catalan armchairs.
Mobles 114 has reissued the Catalana armchair by Rodriguez Arias with oak wood and a handcrafted natural fiber woven seat, respecting the original design as scrupulously as possible. A wooden armchair with a markedly Mediterranean nature that stands out for its six legs, its high backrest and a slope reinforced by the rear legs, factors that give it a current and modern character.
Mobles 114, with the Classics Collection, wants to vindicate all those designers who, with their proposals, have contributed to improving the quality of life in our society, and pay them a well-deserved tribute.
