Low Chair mod. 172

Joaquim Belsa Aldea / Aresta - c. 1960

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 designed for a wide audience. In his designs he used traditional and durable materials, such as natural wood, manila cane, cattail or textiles.

The model 172 low chair is made up of a pine wood structure with a beveled backrest and a braided bulrush seat and represents a clear will to recover and update the popular wood and bulrush chair, perfectly synthesizing the ideas 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.
