It's a Gasca!

Onda1_1 Spanish designer Jesús Gasca brings Scandinavian sensibility and simplicity to his products -- but he adds a certain dash of Mediterranean spice. The combination of ethnic backgrounds is unique -- and so too are his designs. Gasca enjoys experimenting with metals and plastics and applying them in different shapes. The Onda Stool features generous curves and tubular steel legs. It was a familiar shape to me -- like a guitar pick that melted into a seat. Minimal in profile, it is exceptionally well made and well balanced.Globus_0854_red

Maybe I am on a musical bender, but I see the shapeliness of a guitar with his Globus chair.

Gasca and his son Jon create their products under the brand name STUA, which Gasca founded in 1983.
