Adamastor lounge chair and ottoman is made of oak or walnut wood, and upholstered with natural leather.
The Adamastor project development mimics a “wood skeleton structure with foam muscles and a leather skin coverage”. These muscles are optional, resizable and each chair is tailor made. Adamastor represents a mutant monster made out of dark clouds and stormy waves that scared the Portuguese sailors when they sailed from Portugal to India back in the 15th century. This “natural monster” was created by Portuguese writer Luís de Camões, in its poetry book called "Os Lusíadas" to represent the courage of the Portuguese sailors, facing the unknown and dangerous monsters.
The Adamastor lounge chair has the option of being mutant like the Monster in the book. Each part may be developed specifically by user request. In the construction process, measurements and materials can be customized to customer tastes and needs.
Based in the principle of local production and fair price calculation, the Adamastor chair may take up to two months production running time. Yet, the quality and expertise of Branca hand makers turns each one of these chairs into a unique and particular product worthy to wait for.
