The original Portuguese chair

Cult brand Adico

Those who have already been to Portugal cannot ignore it. You see the same metal chairs and tables popping up everywhere. Both in the chicest restaurant and in the most ordinary bistro. From the north of Portugal to the southern Algarve. The same familiar image keeps coming back. And this since several generations!

On the back of such a chair you can almost always see the Adico nameplate. This Portuguese manufacturer has been active in Avanca, near Porto, since 1920. In the beginning as an innovative manufacturer of metal furniture for hospitals. The collection was soon successfully expanded to include patio furniture.

In the 1930s, the Adico design team developed model 5008, now also known as the original Portuguese chair. On this patio chair you sit back slightly, so you can enjoy the sun while you drink something or eat an ice cream..

Even more iconic models

In the same period, Adico designed other models that, like model 5008, have now become true classics. Chair 508 and chair 786-A, for example, which had a more upright sitting position so that they can serve as a restaurant chair. The accompanying table 5028 also dates from the same period.

Adico furniture has been a sensation since 1920!
