solid wood, cedar
by Mario Botta
CLESSIDRA (hourglass) is a product born out of Mario Botta’s fertile imagination and wit. The stool is carved out of a single block of scented cedar wood. The solid cedar block, previously squared off, is placed inside a special machine that carves the block around to obtain this highly original shape that almost looks like two hemispheres, one placed upside down over the other.
They are products made of solid wood and are completely natural and hand-finished, without other treatments; further movements, cracks or changing of the wood are unique characteristics of the furniture and are due to the natural settlement and to the different environmental conditions.
