An emotional object inspired in the connection of Portugal to the rooster.

by Andre Teoman

Experimental Portuguese designer André Teoman created the imaginative Galinha Sideboard for the AD Challenge ’17 #ADChallenge17 , working in collaboration with Portuguese furniture manufacturer Johema-furniture. Given Portugal’s affinity with the rooster (the Barcelos Rooster is deemed the unofficial symbol of Portugal) , Teoman’s design characterises this in a wonderfully curious manner: the Galinha Sideboard rests on wooden eggs, sports brass chicken feet handles and Kvadrat ‘feathers’, and offers a quirky surprise within its interior.
