The design of the Temes Easy Chair was born of the fusion of two extraordinary pieces of furniture: ´La Chaise´ by Charles and Ray Eames (created in 1948), and the chair designed by Portuguese/Brazilian designer Joaquim Tenreiro (created between 1940-1950). This chair is part of the ´Fusions Series´, a diverse collection of pieces including furniture, objects and architectural elements which are the result of a constant recombination process among furniture and objects resulting in next-generation creations. The Temes easychair embodies the concept of "cultural anthropophagy", launched in Brazil by Oswald de Andrade in 1928 – the notion of devouring the colonial culture and transforming it into something Brazilian and revolutionary.
The chair makes strong yet subtle references to the roots of Brazilian culture, expressing a true "mongrel" philosophy that highlights the elements of miscegenation and syncretism in the Brazilian people.
