The Trave Chair is a contemporary masterpiece that seamlessly blends modern design with age-old craftsmanship techniques. Alberto Brogliato, one of the minds behind this exceptional creation, shared the challenges faced during its development, stating, “Initially, we designed lots and lots of chairs. Some were even aesthetically pleasing and beautiful, but none had that special something that would have secured its place in the Magis collection.”
However, with a commitment to pushing the boundaries of design, the Trave Chair eventually took shape. At its core is a single bar of solid ash, serving as the backbone of the design and the foundation for the legs, seat, and backrest. This minimalist approach showcases the essence of modern design—stripping away excess until only the essential remains.
What sets the chair apart is its innovative use of solid wood bending technology. Creating the central curved beam is a meticulous process that involves seven days of soaking in steam, immediate bending, and drying in a kiln. This unique technique allows for the creation of a stunning, curved design that sets the Trave Chair apart.
To enhance comfort without compromising aesthetics or craftsmanship, the chair features a generously padded seat and backrest. The solid ash frame is available in three finishes: natural, oak, and black, offering versatility to suit any setting, be it residential or commercial.
The Trave Chair stands as a testament to the harmonious marriage of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship, making it a timeless addition to any space. Its thoughtful construction and attention to detail make it a true work of art in the world of furniture design.
