C Stool, COLLECTIBLE - 2020
C Stool is a bio-concrete stool. Being for outdoor spaces the intention was to control how the water interact with the object, both while raining and in long term variations of the color and shades due to the weather action. The half sphere creates a controlled flow of water from the rain bringing to one single drop in the center of the stool. With the years this would create a different ageing of the material, creating a gradient. The minimal and simple form is reminescience of church stoups and ancient architecture.
The stool is meant to be a modular object to create different configurations as a bench or little architectures for public spaces.
Co-desgned with Davide Ronco. Exhibited at Stereo Exchange, Copenhagen, September 2020.
Fascinated by the chair heritage in Friuli (in northeastern Italy) the assumptions of this low, lounge chair arise from the desire to reflect on the role between the designer and the craftsman. Designing and building this chair was an opportunity to experience the sensation of making a chair from wood. The intention to go back to the origins is translated through an architectural vocabulary of very simple volumes, that finds its roots in a long research on archetypes of lounge chairs. This object wanted to communicate calmness and to serve as a retreat, through a certain balance between strength and lightness.
