Montreuil Chair by Sebastian Erazo

Montreuil Chair is a minimalist chair created by Paris-based designer Sebastian Erazo. Oak chair built with glued half-lapped wood joints. This chair is part of a series currently in development that started one year ago with the “Mueble Campesino” project in Chile (design collaboration between a weaver craftsman and the designer), and that is in current development in Paris, France. The oak chair corresponds to an iteration in the series, where the seat instead of being woven is built also in wood. The seat and backrest are rounded to give a softer feeling to the body, and the structure is left to have sharper square edges, thus enhancing the joinery details. The chair as a whole is treated with a transparent, matte, oil-wax finish, which protects the surfaces from scratches and water, thus leaving the pores open and allowing the wood to breathe.
