Tasca Chair is designed by Pedro Sottomayor for Frama. Conceived with timeless materials and a multi-purpose function for both indoor and outdoor spaces, the Tasca Chair is characterised by modern design simplicity and function. This colour-neutral chair is manufactured almost entirely in brushed aluminium that seamlessly flows from top to bottom. The classic profile of its oval back connects to a slim, perfectly moulded seat that is supported by sleek yet sturdy legs.
'Tasca' is the name for small, family-run, Portuguese restaurants found in old neighbourhoods. The idea was to take classic Tasca-style furniture made from dark-stained wood and reimagine it in raw aluminium for a completely new aesthetic.
The chair's pure industrial aesthetic is complemented by the skilful use of aluminium. The choice to use aluminium as the primary material is driven by the appeal of its lightness, comfort and durability. Unlike any other furniture made of steel or iron, the chair does not rust, but gracefully ages. With its distinctive silvery look, the Tasca chair is a versatile piece, perfect for every space.
With a distinctive brushed finish applied by hand, Tasca's rounded form encases the user. All units are individually crafted and manufactured in Portugal, in one of the oldest furniture factories with more than a century of work experience and crafts tradition. The raw aluminium surface will develop a graceful patina over time, as your story and the chair's merge together.
