The Element chair was handcrafted from solid oak wood and then stained black. It boasts a strong and austere design, in which the back and seat meet in a T shape and are supported by three turned legs, in turn fitted into the seat. The upper part of the backrest features a circular handhold to easily hold and move the chair. The Element functions perfectly as a stool—and the back makes it even more comfortable.
This chair is the modern version of a “tajo,” a seat from Medieval times used for a variety of tasks in the Spanish region of Castile and Leon. These were essential items to a household, characterized by their modest seating area and three legs, granting them better stability. According to Euclid, Greek mathematician referred to as the “founder of geometry,” three distinct non collinear points define a plane. Based on this premise, we can easily understand why three-legged chairs are more stable than those with four.
