Wewood Launches New Chair Inspired by the Village of Ericeira

Designed by Bruno Marques for Wewood, Ericeira chair was created with the local accommodation in mind (homestays, lodges, guesthouses and b&b) influenced by the tradition of Ericeira's fishermen who rented their own houses to the tourists who came to the village in the summer months.

The cross-frame, with the same thickness of the legs, gives it the necessary resistance without losing the aesthetic simplicity.

The cut of the legs, together with the curvature of the plate, makes the seat slightly raised in relation to the structure, inspired by the lines and the tenuous curvature of the surfboards on the top of the waves at the beaches of Ericeira, the surf capital of Portugal and World Surfing Reserve.
