The Weaver's Bench

The Weaver's Bench

Designed by Gabriel Tan


This collection came about when Gabriel Tan met Maria Adelina, a weaver in her sixties and the last known one in Paços Ferreira, a furniture producing town in Portugal. Dona Lina’s energy and passion for her craft was deeply inspiring. She spoke about her work in a buoyant way and displayed great eagerness to continue developing her skills by attending workshops hosted by others. Ultimately, Gabriel Tan designed a seating collection to showcase her craft - stools, a bench and a chair with robust solid wood profiles strong enough to weave around and are very stable. This stretcher-less construction highlights the woven paper cord surface and gives it paramount attention.
