Mario Ruiz based his first collections on an in-depth analysis of POINT’s history and its most emblematic designs. In his Heritage collection, he takes the brand’s famous hand weaving as a reference. He also adapts traditional materials and formats to softer, more modern and fluid languages. “I have an image of the artisans in the 1920s in Alicante working with wicker and creating POINT’s first furniture. That’s where its soul was born. Even today, it’s still inspiring,” says the designer.
The collection recreates the production and styles of these iconic pieces through two proposals: Heritage Lineal and Heritage Contour, two designs that can be combined with each other. While Heritage Lineal has a more conservative style, with straight shapes and balanced geometries, the design of Heritage Contour adopts a softer and more organic silhouette to create a harmonious but more informal piece. All the pieces are made from an aluminium frame with a woven technical fibre outer body. The two lines of the collection are expressed in multiple versions of sofas, armchairs, chairs, stools, side tables, dining tables, sun loungers and daybeds.
