meia lua





meia lua is a three legged and half circular chair which is inspired by the traditional ‘spinning’ chair 






this type of chair was  developed in the eighteenth cenutry and was mainly used when working on a spining wheel




intrigued by it’s simplicity and honesty i recenlty did my own take on this owtherwise rather folckloric chair 






meia lua meaning halv moon in portugese is also a spinning move found in the martial art of capoeira






the first two prototypes of the meia lua chair were designed and handmade at nida art cololny in lithuania
during the neringa forest architecture residency in twenty twenty one
