Furniture Friday, September 22nd 2017.
POLaRT is an acronym for “polymer art.” My father founded in 1979 a workshop which he called PolRey, an acronym for “Poliuretanos (polyurethane) and Reynoso, our family name”. When he started in the furniture industry, he chose to reproduce French Provençal frames using molds and polyurethane. Over time, PolRey became the largest factory in the western hemisphere specialized in Baroque furniture. When I took over, I was intrigued about how the Italians had “coined” the phrase “Mobili d’arte”, which literally means “Art furniture.” I decided to incorporate that into our identity. POLaRT was then created with the intention of inspiring tomorrow with the best from the past. That is to say, my inspiration came from revamping dad’s classics.
