Underlying partnerships have always been a characteristic of Monteiros. At M-Detach we make use of that principle, in a more intense manner, collaborating with thinkers: Architects, Designers, Visual Artists…
Just like them, we try to reach a little further, a little beyond, expecting to create something and get somewhere ahead of our time.
A set of pieces inspired by molecular structures, composed of, at least, two atoms e their covalent bond. Taking advantage of metal resistance, the pieces assume a fragile and light look. Originally, bidimensional, they, surprisingly, acquire their tridimensionality without requiring any other tools besides the hands. Just like atoms bonding differently in space, yielding different matters. A few circles and their specific bonds are transformed into pieces with completely diverse purposes, only varying the circle dimension and space positioning, as well as the respective bonds.
The LIC chair was conceived through a bidimensional profile which minimises the surface area needed for support. This steel profile is created by means of a constructing unit, mixed and multiplied by copy and rotation geometrical operations, performed around a vertical axis.
The LIC chair presents a 90º angle (seat and backrest) between each rotational axis, for the two construction units, perpendicularly oriented according to their pressure points, alternating the relationship between volume, density and weight, in a constant contrast with the visual perception of the space in which we visualise it. The LIC chair is produced from 108 steel construction units, cut out with laser by means of a computerised numeric control machine and, then, assembled according to a disposition determined by the balance between strength and flexibility points, as far as body weight is concerned.
