ATRA Launches New Collection from Their San Francisco Gallery
Known for crafting furniture with unpretentious beauty and practicality, ATRA recently made a second home for itself in San Francisco, opening ATRA’s Gallery in August 2018. A microcosm of the studio’s aesthetic philosophy, this gallery space showcases signature collection pieces as well as exclusive artistic creations by rising and renowned talent from Mexico and beyond.
“I don’t want to dictate what people think about every detail of every piece,” says ATRA Founder and creative director Alexander Díaz Andersson. “I’d rather everyone establish their own dialogue with the collection. Really, I just want to make something beautiful that you’ll fall in love with, that will change the space you live in, and that you’ll keep for a very long time.”
See some of our favorite pieces from the collection below, and see more of ATRA’s creations here.
Air Sofa: Inspired by aeordynamics, the Air Sofa almost feels as if it could float away. However, it’s a piece that’s made to live in, with a cushioned seat inviting users to lounge and arms perfect for perching.
Ala Mahogany Bench: Inspired by 1950’s Mexican furniture and constructed using traditional joinery techniques in solid hardwood, Ala is a beautiful and stylish piece. With the option of adding cushions, it’s intended for both indoor and outdoor use.
Roos Walnut Desk: Made of walnut mahogany and steel, the Roos has a classic triangular suspension configuration, with an elegantly curved lacquer top that delivers a smooth and chic finish.
The Omega Table: The Omega Table gets its name from by the infinite loop that can be seen in its eye-catching base. Handcrafted with a solid walnut top and elegantly tapered with beveled edges, it perches delicately on a solid brass and steel base.
