Household furniture.

To produce this line of wooden furniture for the home, the production capacity of Móveis Sousa Braga was associated with the marketing structures of Metalúrgica da Longra. A series of storage furniture, which was modulated and resulted from the combination of interchangeable elements, was created from scratch; the seating components were based on some previously designed models (Alvor, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation), now adapted according to the new purposes: the expression of the structure was lightened, both by reducing the sections of the resistant elements and by using light coloured wood (beech).
