The Niemeyer armchair, one of InsidherLand’s best sellers, has recently received a remake that evokes the sophistication of natural materials. Charming and delicate, the refined new edition gathers the beauty of the wool, emphasizing the modernist lines of the piece, and the sturdiness of the natural oak, bringing to mind a sense of nature and wonder.
Niemeyer is named after the Brazilian Architect Oscar Niemeyer whose Architecture was spread like sculptural poetry in the History of humankind. The rounded lines of the armchair are influenced by the remarkable ‘Casa das Canoas’ designed by Niemeyer in 1951.
If looking through the human scale point of view, the glass facade disappears within the tropical forest, but from above, the sculpted concrete flat roof floats and stands out in the landscape. The flat roof offers its flowing forms to the round seat. The backward movement of the curve that frames a large granite boulder is recreated by the location of the seams in a meticulous upholstered work that flows all around the arms of the armchair.
