THE VIBE? A UBER-MODERN PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT USES A MATERIAL THAT DATES BACK A THOUSAND YEARS
Essence is Toncelli’s latest offering for 2016, a product that brilliantly resolves the tension between history and innovation, while keeping the company’s philosophy in mind at all times. The collection heavily
features fossil beechwood combined with titanium steel finishings even used for the cooking surface. Certified by La Sapienza University in Rome, this material constituted a stimulating challenge for Toncelli, which chose to adopt it as the material of absolute prestige both in the door panels and surface top, creating a poetic combination between the richness of the product and technology. Thanks to the use of natural oils and the crystallisation that takes place through time eliminating porosity, these materials with a primordial appeal do not get damaged when cooking and do not absorb water, making them a practical and efficient thin support. The grains and tones created during the fossilisation process add an extraordinary layer of decorative quality that enriches and refines the sartorial design of Toncelli furnishings.
