The Fernandine walls are a part of History that embraces the city of Porto, located in the north of Portugal. These medieval fortifications topped off by battlements were completed during the reign of King D. Fernando and their remains are part of the extraordinary beautiful scenery of the D. Luís bridge with colourful houses that paint the banks of the Douro River.
Inspired by these old fortifications of Porto, the Fernandine armchair is seen from the outside perspective as a high wall that surrounds the seat. Two brass pieces stand out as cutouts that reenacts the battlements, as details that outline the structure, being also visible in the interior of the piece.
Fernandine’s perimeter is like the great wall, noble and brave, strong and safe, but its interior with an elevated seat and a loose cushion, becomes as comfortable and charming as the so typical well-known warm welcoming of the people from Porto.
