To find the origins of Amato Sole you have to go searching in the Raval, in a space that was somewhere between a creative laboratory and an underground art gallery. Annamaria Amato and Ramón Solé passed on a lot of verbs there: design, recycle, transform and exploit. Instead they found a balance in just two: restore and create. Wooden chairs with an iron armchair fill a need. They didn't know much about upholstery, but iron dominated. Playing around with improvisation, invention and economisation, their own unique style began to take shape. And the recovery of objects (or pieces of them) to create others did the rest. Their passion for wood is a given.
