When we were kids, I with my brothers liked to listen to the grandfather’s stories about life and asked for them at every opportunity while sitting down around him on the floor. He amused us with these stories, slowly leading his deliberate tales rich in details sitting in his chair. He was the same lover of old stories himself! Inspired by childhood memories, we had a dig at the reincarnation of an archaic object that became for us the intimate and silent witness of our growing up.


In our interpretation, the heroes if the past came to life like a chameleon assuming in the colors of the scene of the stories. Working through the details of the collection and decoration, we created four brutal archetypes, each of which personified the type of human activity: “Savant”– scientist, “Farmer” – farmer, “Lumberer” – woodcutter. We refused the classic images and took as a basis an open form, clear content, and we called the collection a fictional but pleasant word Tuttu.


Tuttu “Farmer” – a farmer. As a result of colorful textile with a bright jacquard design gathering in the manner of a patchwork mosaic, we achieve a pleasant feeling of walking through the countryside. The chair poetizes life of people, wakening the images of rural pretty girls, dreams of pure beauty, and the natural life in the great outdoors; it forms the unity of romantic memories and peasant folklore.


The wraparound soft part of the chairs is delicately superimposed on the smooth metal frames and fastens with buttons. It has an external and internal fiber coating for care. The back of the three collection chairs resembles a knapsack with a pocket for useful things and has a lodgment for magazines under the seat. We create special side-tables for drinks, which also could be used as a stool for legs.


Standard complete set includes one framework of a chair, one textile pillow with filler, one frame of a coffee table with a wooden tabletop, the textile cushion with filler for legs. The color of the armchair frame is available at request (by RAL). A pillow from leather is also available.
