Pontenove is a two-door cabinet made as a single block using wood with vertical grain. It comes in three versions, with different surface finishes. It is manually finished on all sides using a plane and gouge. The burnished steel latches and concealed hinges are specially designed and crafted. 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.
The determined shape of this block – a horizontal volume made with a vertical grain – has a minimalist, poetic body which evokes primordial building blocks. Customised and made with Linden wood, European cherry.
