How our Furniture is Built
Having studied Art History and Design, Diana Font’s academic interests and talents guided her toward an appreciation of space and the natural progression of how we fill that space. She was drawn to how nature contributes, in form and concept, to that natural progression which pleases the eye and conforms to our lifestyle.
This has led to the search for the places which made available the prime material for use in our pieces and the people who through tradition and culture maintain the manner of authentic manufacture and where for example, each piece is crafted with handheld carving tools, void of nails and screws.
Our pieces are joined with mortise and tenon to fasten every union, dowels to attach table tops to their supporting frame, hidden dowels to anchor miter joints. Since our beginnings we have worked with the best of tropical hardwoods: Mahogany, Cedar, Fiddle Wood and Conacaste, among others, which we dry to six-degree humidity in an electric kiln which avoids twisting and cracking in order to guarantee the timelessness and quality.
Exquisite hand rubbing finishes, water-based stains which are naturally absorbed by the wood and never discolor, finished with durable polymers that will stand weathering and use, all this and the care that each artisan and the designer contributes, assures that these pieces can be considered an investment which each generation can treasure and recognize its value and beauty.
