"All you can seat "stools


cm 40x33x40h


The “All You Can Seat” design is based on old Islamic geometry and patterns. Islamic patterns have been greatly used in architecture and design throughout time, with the concentration on Arabesque patterns. This Stool/Side Table has the shape of a forgotten pattern from the Alhambra Palace. It is a modular design that comes in 3 different materials and allows people to create their own shape and select their preferred material, thus creating a more personalised product that can be used as a single unit or as a more elaborate composition.



White semirefractory clay

cm 141x76x176h

A one-off piece


This object is a kind of machine, a circuit that connects two seats in a single space, allowing two people to converse without touching each other, just as in a church confessional.


"COMOD-One" Table

Pure acetic acid cure silicone and wood

layered and rollered fusion

cm 130x280x75h (table top: cm 90x210)


The COMOD-One table was designed to meet the need to increase a table’s usable surface area by adapting over-sized legs as shelves. It consists of a table top and four cubes. There are no screws or joints. The silicone takes the edges off sharp corners and the new UVA-resistant pigmentation means it can be kept outside, an innovation that proves necessary when using wooden materials outdoors.

"Iperbolica Wood" armchair

Pure acetic acid cured silicone and memory foam

layered and rollered fusion

cm 110x100x80h


Ciffo’s Iperbolica armchair, a design presented at the 2012 Triennale exhibition in Milan, is now available in an outdoor Wood version thanks to the use of new UVA-resistant pigments, as well as the long-lasting durability of the injected moulded foam.


"Intothejungle" stool


cm 33x33x43/53h


Like blocks of earth extracted from an equatorial jungle, bearing the signs of man’s fleeting presence and the exuberance of nature.



cm 33x33x43h


A hymn to – and a revolt against – housework. The minimal style of the seats is disturbed by the traces of objects used on a daily basis in the home. The fossilised temple of an iron, a mop and a carpet beater.

"Fossile", interlocking tables

Iron and ceramic

cm 80x80x73h – cm 80x30x73h – cm 30x40x73h – cm 120x50x73h

Different kinds of marks and impressions interact with each other, a patchwork of traces that tell stories of both life in the wild and life in a domestic environment.


"Solaris" armchair

mild steel

cm 128x84x84h


The Solaris chair was inspired by a visit to the Science Museum’s exhibit ‘Cosmonauts’, which contains artefacts from the Soviet Space Program through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. The name Solaris is taken from the 1972 Russian science fiction film by Andrei Tarkovsky, a "drama of grief and partial recovery" concentrated upon the thoughts and the consciences of the cosmonaut scientists studying Solaris' mysterious ocean. Looking like something between a satellite and the nose cone of a space rocket, I wanted the chair to capture this era of space exploration, and of the epic ‘space race’ between the USA and Soviet Russia.


"Burned Paper" cabinet

Hand-embossed, blowtorch-cut and powder-coated iron plate

cm 100x170hx30

"Burned Paper" consolle

Hand-embossed, blowtorch-cut and powder-coated iron plate

cm 135x35x90h


Roberto Mora’s burnt paper is the natural evolution of a creative process that began in 2008 with "Carte & cartocci". Today, this designer doesn’t stop at twisting iron plate in order to create effects that imitate crumpled paper; he also makes use of the destructive allure and power of fire! Mora’s experiment is both hyperrealistic and conceptual. He observes and imitates what happens next – i.e. the colour changes caused by burning – whilst attempting to focus on what is lost in the process. Fire destructs, distorts and shapes, offering us a new perception of matter, time and space.


“Movimento Basso Marmo” side tables

Carved marble

Ø cm. 56 x 32 h.

Limited edition


“Movimento 4 Fondente”

Cast copper

Ø cm. 64 x 55 h.


“Movimento Basso Fondente”

Cast copper

Ø cm. 60 x 32 h.


“Movimento 5”

Pink silk tree / Albizia wood

Ø cm.50 x 93 h.

A one-off piece


With this series of pieces in the “Moving On” collection, spirals carved from a single block are freed by gouging into marble and pink silk tree wood, creating lines that twist around an axis, as if they were imitating DNA: the memory of living matter. Instead, matter disintegrates into separate parts that are no longer single blocks; they are copper discs stacked on top of each other, where the natural oxidation process that occurs over time is accelerated.


"Crash" console table


cm 120x40x75h


The concept of matter in its primordial state, in evolution. The “crash” could convey a sense of the torment/rejection that matter undergoes when constrained into a rigid, geometric shape.


"Zolla (after Albrecht Dürer)" mirror

Etched mirror

cm 80x200h


The outline of Albrecht Dürer’s Great Piece of Turf is etched onto a sheet of industrial mirror, and, in so doing, the metallic layer that turns any piece of glass into a reflective surface is removed. The mirror therefore focuses on an emptiness that nevertheless portrays earth; the images reflected in the mirror “peer” from behind Dürer’s “weeds”.


"Rawdendro" throne chair


diam cm 50/65 x 125h


"Rawdendro" container with three stools


diam cm 110 x 50 x 210h


The RAWDENDRO collection makes use of paper and papers, featuring the creation of two practical, sculptural objects: a throne chair and a monolithic container that turns into two seats. Both pieces are made up of thousands of thin sheets of paper. These bits of paper are strips taken from the pages of old books and documents, chosen on the basis of their weight and colour, which were then moulded and cut out by hand. Pressed together and structured to form paper composites, they reveal outlines, grafts, thicknesses and traces of printed words.

“Layer on layer, strip on strip, paper is transformed into a porous, limestone-like or wooden material, depending on its density. The throne’s backrest and seat invite us to feel the material, to explore it with our fingers. The high monolith – with its two cylindrical shapes grafted onto its width, parts that can be detached and used – shows how we can transform and modify space to suit our existence, with a simple movement.”


"Oggetti Dinamici" series

"Untitled" lamp

Aluminium, resin and brass

cm 6x6x40


This collection features surprising objects made using a number of very different technologies. Pure craftsmanship and sophisticated 3D print technologies combine to create a dynamic whole, able to generate movement, thus giving these objects new meaning, turning them into toys, means of “transport” in the emotional sense of the term. The first edition features a lamp with a cylindrical aluminium body that conceals within it a light that can be moved and adjusted as required. This object can be adjusted using a series of geometrically differing levels made of marble and aluminium/brass, thus allowing us to interact with the object and to experiment with different solutions.

"Microcosmo" ( uovo )

Gold/chrome-plated aluminium piece with glycerine-preserved roses

diam cm 18x23h


Gold/chrome-plated brass piece with glycerine-preserved roses

diam cm 9x11h


These creations stem from a feeling that Nature will take its revenge on Man, inspired by the conviction that the Earth will soon re-establish a balance. These are simple, useful, solid and durable objects that last beyond the temporary state of our passing existence here on Earth, beyond the length of a lunar cycle, above and beyond any rule of organic nature. Perfect for the home of those who wish to gently love and nurture their environment, respecting the changes that occur in materials and relationships.


"Totem da Colorare"

White bisque with wax coating

various heights

in partnership with Benedetto Fasciana

Matteo Thun Atelier catalogue


A partnership with Tuscan ceramics experts, inspired by the archetypal forms of containers and vases, gave rise to MATTEO THUN ATELIER’s Totem AC collections which, this year, become “da colorare" (colourable). In this way, traditional vase-making is combined with the fresh delicacy of colours inspired by the natural essences of spring.


"Bidone Nero " (B-3624) CABINET

Panel decorated with photographs of sterile metal barrels, re-interpreted and printed on plaster-like material and hand-applied to a rigid MDF base.

cm 100x40x170h


Anna Maria Tulli began delving into photography 17 years ago, at the dawn of the digital age. Her work is characterised by the use of new and continually evolving print materials that tend to distance themselves from the tradition of a pure and simple “impression” in order to become a technical, as well as aesthetic, invention. Her photographs focus on a number of pivotal themes that become the subject of these images and the object of a more theoretical and personal in-depth analysis, in this particular case featuring the portrayal of sterile metal barrels, a surface that contains something that remains hidden from view.
