I spotted these über cool furniture pieces recently in Trendland. I thought the concept was inspired.
In 2010 Ciszak Dalmas launched “La Clinica” – a collection of handcrafted furniture produced by local artisans based in three different parts of the world: Madrid (Spain), Turin (Italy) and São Paulo (Brazil). La Clinica is based on the interaction between young designers and experienced artisans, which combines new ideas with centuries-old know-how. The result is three different collections made from the same design and produced differently according to the local traditions and material resources.
Each piece is made from solid wood and painted with water-based colors. They are designed to be completely dismountable, lowering the costs of shipping and storage. The furniture has a much lower CO2 footprint, too thanks to the efficient use of natural materials and following the rules for a correct use of forest resources, that means using wood which is programmed to be cut and replanted.
In 2010, Ciszak Dalmas received the first prize of the INJUVE Young Designs Awards for La Clinica and in the last twelve months has been invited to present its collection in International exhibitions in Europe, China and South America (but not Australia, yet!).
