The MT Chair has been designed to be in front of artistic works, which you can contemplate calmly, enjoy them alone (vertically like a chair), or in the company of its second position of two seats (horizontally like a bench).
Specially designed for the Terracotta Museum in La Bisbal d’Empordà, the MT Chair presents its dual use in simple and direct ways, through its asymmetry.
Made in noble materials, such as iron, leather and especially hand-stretched burlap, which we give prominence to achieve a discreet and simple piece that fits well with the values ??of a museum of pottery and industrial ceramics.
Also used as a lectern in presentations and inaugurations, it is shown as an element of measured presence and basic forms.

Bio
BAG is a multidisciplinar design studio borned between Barcelona, Andorra & Girona. Three cities that are the initials of the name of our studio, but also show the local focus that we wanted to transfer to our projects.
We understand design as a powerful tool to change the perception of things, in complete aspiration to make a better world.
We continually question and review the design process on why, or how, we can improve each project.
We believe in the possibility of changing the world based on each person’s individual decisions. Because this is where the person's most intimate freedom.
