Baltasar Portillo's Armadillo and Lodge Chairs Embrace Art and Architecture

The Armadillo and Lodge chairs embrace art, sculpture and architecture in addition to industrial design. If a person didn't know any better, they could easily mistake one or both of these chairs as artworks rather than functional pieces of furniture.

Designed by Baltasar Portillo, an industrial designer born in El Salvador, the Armadillo and Lodge chairs bring to mind suspension bridges and the Eiffel Tower. Airy and light, the latticed pattern allows these two chairs to become part of their environment almost as much as they stand out since people can see through them.

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, the Armadillo and Lodge chairs are stunningly contemporary.
