Alongside his main activity, the Chilean architect Cristian Valdés dabbled in furniture design. For him, the only fundamental difference between design and architecture is a question of scale. The collection of furniture that he then created is the concrete result of the intersection of these two worlds. In 1977, he gave birth to the Valdés Model A.

The idea came to him after analyzing the structure and construction method of a Dunlop tennis racquet similar to the one John McEnroe played with at the time. This chair is the functional and structural translation. It is remarkable for its constructive mode and its soft curves which make it a very comfortable and elegant seat whose natural leather will take on a magnificent patina over time.

The Valdés chair quickly became a design icon in its country. She is appreciated and recognized for her unusual style.

Handcrafted in small series, Cristian Valdés furniture is today unique, rare and sought after objects.
