Art on Chairs is an international event that promotes design and contemporary creativity as driving forces for innovation in industry and development in Paredes, a Portuguese municipality committed to the production of high-quality furniture.

The DUET component of the celebration partners designers with world-renowned personalities and furniture manufacturers from Paredes. 

Portuguese architect/designer  Eduardo Benamor Duarte created  this chair based on the work of best-selling author Paulo Coelho.

Emanating from Coelho’s  “animistic belief that every non-human form has a spiritual essence,” Duarte has created a wild mind-bending chair that is seemingly in constant motion
