Set of Six Aresta Dining Chairs

Joaquim Belsa Aldea / Aresta - 1961

Throughout his career, the Catalan industrial designer Joaquim Belsa Aldea (1929-2018) had an interest in the design and production of simple and austere furniture conceived for a wide audience. In his designs he used traditional and durable materials, such as natural wood, manila cane, cattail or textiles.

The "Aresta" chair designed in 1961 is made up of a pine wood structure with a beveled back and a braided cattail seat and represents a clear desire to recover and update the popular chair made of wood and cattail, perfectly synthesizing the ideology of its author of simplicity and modernity.

The creation of his own company Aresta together with Joan Mañá in 1961 allowed him to develop his own designs, influenced by rationalism and the formal concerns of the Modern Movement.
