Tucurinca is a company that specializes in chair design manufactured with traditional techniques inspired by the Colombian Caribbean way of living. One of the primary purposes of the brand is the preservation of these methods. Their primary interest is saving the traditional costeña chair, reinventing the designs, recovering techniques, and innovating materials. Inspired by the Colombian tropics, from the way they are found in the jungle to the style of living in a popular neighborhood, Tucurinca aims to honor the customs and traditions of the ancestors in this region. The brand´s motivation is transforming everyday life through modern furniture design and avant-garde style. The chair, in this case, possesses all of these functions, aesthetic and lifestyle qualities. For this reason, this is the ideal piece to recreate stories. Their furniture portfolio consists of a combination of traditional techniques and international standards that represent Colombia in the world of interior design.

Our work is very intuitive; it is trial and error; it is part of an important part of what we do, create, and feel. Even though the color is part of the identity of the Carribean chair, the idea that the client can create its chair gives us the possibility to provide new products more frequently. Many times the designs found in popular pieces of the brand are the results of a co-creation with the client.
