May is a lounge armchair, with balanced proportions and generous comfort, to be used in various environments, such as living rooms, bedrooms, and lobby areas. The extreme comfort of the upholstery, in line with the sculptural forms of the wood are the main differentials of a piece that transcends its status quo. The upholstery with precise cuts, seams that are both firm and delicate. The wood, in turn, is valued in particular twists, which show the construction of the piece and the natural veins of the wood. Its shape seems to embrace the upholstery. The fluidity and continuity of the lines are an invitation to look and touch.

Bio
Commanding the materialization of his projects with a strategic view in a complex and extensive line of furniture and objects, Jader Almeida allies the most advanced furniture serial manufacturing system to the finest and irreplaceable treatment of manual finishing. Jader Almeida's pieces make themselves known in layers. Each may be savored slowly."I create pieces, not to play a main role in the space, but to play supporting roles. My design is the fruit of extreme labor of projected simplification and, at the same time, from the point of view of production, my pieces are very detailed".
