As an engineer-cum-artist, Aristeu Pires designs each piece with great forethought to desired outcomes of human behavior. He envisions a chair to facilitate warm connections, forging and exchanging energy among collaborators. Some pieces are designed for small gatherings of ideators, a respite from a task chair. Others are purposed for working in solitude, naturally enabling a correct posture while engaged with a tablet or smartphone.
The curve of a backrest, placement of an arm, and pitch of a seat are thoughtfully engineered to rejuvenate the body, whether negotiating an agreement or entertaining a client. Aristeu’s Aurora and Daniella armchairs will sustain long nights in the boardroom as well as an evening of fine dining. They are designed to refresh the body and provide warm hospitality, all while enabling relaxed conversation and the sharing of ideas, goals, and hopes.
