Palestrina is a chair made from hand-carved planks of solid wood.
It is finished manually on all sides by gouging. The entire manufacturing and finishing process is carried out manually in our workshop. The wood used for this piece is Juglans Regia – common Italian walnut; not dried but “raw”. This wood belongs to the Latin tradition of furniture-making and features an extremely compact fibre which can, however, be worked without too much difficulty; it is therefore highly suitable for household items. Over time the wood hardens and becomes extremely resistant, and oxidises slightly to take on a progressively warmer amber colour.
Precise ergonomic definition and extreme minimalism of construction find their synthesis in the constrained human beauty of this work.
Customisable and made with European cherry, Slavonian oak, maple.
