‘Tertulia’ is the Spanish word for gathering, a conversational get together in which people simply
sit and exchange their ideas freely. Tertulias can happen in a moments notice. They can happen
anytime or anyplace, and for that reason a folding chair was simply the most natural departing
point typology for this project.
Tertulia is a multi-purpose /flexi-use folding chair originally derived from the metal curved rods
inside a climbing pack. Their design features a unique patent pending geometry that does not rely
on either an “X” or “A” Frame configuration, and yet allows for infinite material and pattern design
configurations. Two prototype versions of Tertulia were displayed at the Salone del Mobile 2008
(Stand A-21), one in Wood, the other in stainless steel.
