Baobab

Baobab is characterised by the contrast of the full rounded form of the seat with the fine and elegant profile of the back. The result, quite apart from its unique personality is a very pleasing, comfortable and eye catching piece.

Lievore Altherr Molina

Born in 1948, Alberto Lievore studied architecture in Buenos Aires. In the early years he focused not only on design, but also on the production and marketing of furniture, then, having moved to Barcelona, he was part of the Grupo Berenguer (1977), a leading name in Spanish design. In 1984 he inaugurated his own studio, focusing on industrial design, and on consultancy and art direction for a number of firms. His partners are designer and stylist Jeannette Altherr, who specializes in objects and spaces for children, and Manel Molina, who again brings with him vast and varied experiences in the industrial and exhibition design sectors.
