Plinio il Giovane
Whatever is surplus is only there to be broken
Everybody knows that a clothes hanger is used more often in winter than in summer because you never know where to hang the overcoat you don’t need in summer. When I designed this, I had in mind a tree that loses its leaves in autumn only to reveal its delicate outline which seems to have been sculpted by a woodpecker.
“Picchio” is made of five very slim pieces of wood which are linked together by an old fashioned long treaded screw tightened by a normal screwdriver. This fascinatingly beautiful structure, which has a lot to teach us even today, can very easily be taken apart in only a few minutes.
Every piece of furniture is handmade, one at time.
We use pure linseed oil and natural pigments to finish all our products.
Adopting an age-old technique that prolongs the life of the product and at the same time renders it unique and one-off.
Personalised finishes to our products are also available for our loyal customers, using natural, eco-friendly materials.
Forty years of research into highly resistant and eco-friendly materials have resulted in our new collection of hard-wearing textiles, produced on the jacquard looms of the old master weavers of our region.
We care very much about having a direct and immediate relationship with our customers. If you are unable to come and visit us in person or call in on one of our trusted retailers, we invite you to get in touch with us so that we can provide you with any assistance you might need.
