From Portugal and working with designers from all over the world, UVA is a company that develops objects inspired by traditional craft skills, applied to a context of global design, technology and innovation. With the goal of empowering and reactivating Portuguese ancestral economies based in small workshops and hand making solutions, UVA promotes a collaborative approach to the design process.

UVA creates products that people can relate to, taking the shared knowledge between designers and artisans who blend their vast experience with technics, materials and most importantly with human potentials. In this process, where the local meets the global, UVA becomes as a platform for carrying traditions a step forward.

Designed by Snarkitecture for UVA, Slip Chair is a wooden chair that appears to be sinking into the ground. As it may seem unusable at first, the wooden frame is even out with a tapered stone and a functional surface for sitting is provided. The apparently opposed elements of the chair are counterbalanced through the monolithic volume of the stone. The chair revolves upon two axes and the suggested unsteadiness of the sliding forms conceals the complete stability of Slip.
