ABC is the starting point of language, the alphabet. It is the beginning of everything and in this case, it is transformed into the first collection of furniture created by Lázaro Rosa Violán. This collection aims to reinterpret the classic school chair and take it to another level by combining comfort, resilience and durability. ABC is the designer’s manikin and becomes the basis for a plethora of creations with delicate combinations and textures, resulting in forms with a classic base, but also timeless with a decorative, even chameleon-like touch.
Lázaro started his professional career as a painter. By age 8 he had staged his first exhibition in Brussels. Finding success at an early age, he continued his passion for painting and exhibited his work, whilst also studying architecture at the University of Madrid. By age 23, he moved to Paris to continue painting and spent several summers working in the northern countryside of England. Then in 1998, one of his brothers recommended that he design the restaurant Can Vent on the Balearic island of Formentera. He took a three-month break to create the space, designing it around the natural landscape. It became an overnight success and still thrives today.
