Radar Armchair by Carlos Motta

Affixed on a four-legged oxidized iron swivel base, Carlos Motta’s swift Radar armchair contours the body with its ergonomic wood-slatted seat and back, hand-crafted from reclaimed native Brazilian Peroba Rosa wood.

Riffing on the utilitarian design of a spinning radar, the stylish and functional Radar armchair has been widely acclaimed in the 3 years since it was first introduced in the US at Motta’s solo exhibition at ESPASSO, NY, in 2010.

The Radar armchair has been included in exhibitions at institutions such as MAM (Museu de Arte Moderna), São Paulo; Museu da Casa Brasileira, São Paulo; Museu Oscar Niemeyer, Curitiba; Design Galerie ZEITLOS in Berlin; Museu do Design e da Moda (MUDE) in Lisbon, as well as receiving the Greenvana GreenBest Award in 2011.
