The Duda Armchair stands out for its ergonomics and comfort, also reflecting Fernando Mendes' passion for automotive design.
Duda, the honoree, is Fernando Mendes' beloved Shih-Tzu, who always accompanies him in Vale das Videiras, where his workshop is located.
Behind the design
Fernando drew inspiration from the cockpits of vintage cars. The backrest cushion is attached to the structure, ensuring comfort. The elegance and “retro” touch are visually evident in the intricate stitching and sophisticated cutouts.
The robust shell, fully upholstered, hovers above rounded solid freijó wood legs, adding a special touch to the piece.
