A poplar wood structure; pure, strong and characterful. A surface woven by expert hands, made using sisal fibres, a traditional material sourced from the fique plant, a cactus from the tropics. The seemingly simple beauty of PONZA distils the experience of an entire team meticulously working the material using traditional techniques.
The richness and complexity of this technique used can be observed in the detailing such as the intricate braiding. PONZA is an homage to simplicity, to the beauty of all that is honest, made by hand. It also serves as a reminder to pause and take stock.
PONZA is the perfect summation of the Let’s Pause spirit: simple, crafted and timeless. This everyday object betrays the origins of all seating, first the simple chair and later the armchair. The stool has been with us since time immemorial. Stools for sitting while working, for taking a breather in the home, as a basic piece of furniture for resting. Till today, a continuum through time and space. The humble stool represents the most basic principle of taking a break. A pause.
The design of PONZA by Let’s Paue is made by two teams of experts: one looks after se-lecting and cutting the poplar wood by hand (avoiding the use of varnishes and polish) maintaining its individual texture and character. And another that carries out the weaving using sisal fibre, available in four different colour tones: white, copper, anthracite grey and natural brown. Each PONZA is unique, a one-off, as are the trees from which the wood is sourced.
Its simplicity and versatility make PONZA the ideal accessory for any space: a country style kitchen or a cutting edge living room décor, for a porch, a garden, a secluded corner where you can grab 40 winks or even a magazine holder for storing your favourite publications. Combine different models and colours or simply choose one colour. Or you can always customise one by painting its legs, using any kind of paint. As with everything else Let’s Pause creates you decide the best way to use PONZA in your life.
