S2 Dining Chair
Designed and produced for Canadian Embassies around the globe - craftsmanship is what separates this chair from any other. Restrained in design and exact in its bend, measurement and proportion - the focal point of this piece is its curved ribbed backrest. Constructed of solid, sustainably-harvested walnut or oak with a catalyzed lacquer finish, and serafini leather custom sourced from a tannery in Italy.
S3 Lounge Chair
Designed and produced for the Canadian Embassies in London, England and the Canadian Embassy in Brussels, Belgium - the S3 Lounge Chair finds its power though subtle details and a timeless appeal. Meticulously handcrafted, each chair is precisely engineered to highlight its unique wrap-around solid walnut and brass frame and flawless joinery.
An evolving exploration of new materials, forms and technology that seek to create minimal, sculptural and cinematic light forms.
The Gamla brand is classic, luxurious, and restrained. We speak to a sophisticated person, one with a refined taste and a desire for heirloom quality objects that can define a family timeline.
Stemming from one-of-a-kind hand-crafted pieces, we intended to communicate the sense of exclusivity that pays meticulous attention to detail and never compromises on quality.
