Inspired by the classic Adirondack Chair, an iconic American piece often used on porches and patios, this chair was designed upon request from a client for a residence in Healdsburg, California.
Our starting point was an abstraction of the original version, leaving only the basic geometric bodies that make up the original version: rectangular prisms and cylinders, which in our version are presented through intersections. The wood is called Huanacaxtle, a species endemic to the Mexican southeast. At the customer's request, we incorporated leather in the seat that floats attached by straps and buckles placed at the bottom, embracing the cylinder at the front. We also use leather on the cylinder to support the head.
It is worth mentioning that part of the formal and structural solutions of the chair would not have been possible without the collaboration of our master carpenters and our master upholsterers (a working group made up mostly of women) the assembly of the leg with the cylinder and the leather straps were ideas that came from them during visits to the workshop.
The chair is part of the exhibition Design in Feminine, curated by Ana Elena Mallet and Pilar Obeso.

We are Andrea Flores and Lucía Soto. In 2014 we founded Comité de Proyectos, a company dedicated to interior design and furniture design, located in Mexico City.

What we enjoy most about our work is translating emotions and sensations into utilitarian objects and living spaces; that is, internalization. We like to create transcendent, durable and timeless pieces, with a contemporary style working hand in hand in collaboration with craft workshops.

Our thinking is a constant flow between the subjective and the functional, the craft and the the market, technique and art.
