Légé, épuré, chaque tabouret est fait main par des artisans de Vicenza, Italie, intégrant un double anneaux servant d’assise et de poignet.
Ses mots sur le projet :
« The rounded contours of Aro, invite to sit and look visually soft. It was also important that while having its own character, the stool would have the ability to blend well in a variety of environments.The level of craftsmanship is demonstrated on the joints that link the top parts and the legs at different angles«
Pièce réalisée en frêne naturel et teinté.
