Structura is an artisanal furniture building system (or principle) based on simple, intuitive structures (often) realised by peasants with available material – paired with Japanese construction details.
The structure consists of horizontal and vertical slats fixed in only one point: the vertical board inserted between the horizontal slats prevents the vertical slats from hanging down (rotation).
Each element – board, slat, wedge – is indispensable for the construction respectively for its stability: the vertical boards support the horizontal slats and the horizontal boards – the wedges fix the vertical boards and counterbalance the shrinking or swelling of the vertical boards.

Palutta is a series of cutlery and kitchen utensils, based on typologies, manufacturing processes and culinary customs from the Grisons (Switzerland), combined with technologies from foreign cultures. Items used to eat are lacquered with Urushi (Wajima-nuri), a durable natural lacquer, which protects the wood from acids, bases, alcohol, solvents and humidity.
The divers utensils are made from maple wood, stainless steel, porcelain or linen and are produced industrially. The form, material and manufacturing process are based on archaic prototypes, which are combined with contemporary lines and technologies. The drawings subtlety, realized thanks to new manufacturing processes, modifies the characteristics of the archetype, resulting in a light and fine product.

Magasin is an accessories collection comprising containers, vases and pedestals made from ash, glass and stone for offices and homes. The geometrical (square, round) forms are based on specific functions found in an office (A4) or in a home, kitchen (food). All containers are combining the rectangular and the circular plan resulting in soft, rounded volumes: the round and the rectangular containers are equally produced starting with five planks assembled to an open box. The initial form (box) is perceptible due to five clear joint lines and different grain development: the round boxes are additionally visually divided in four segments due to light and shadow creating a difference in brightness between each segment – a subtle ornament.
The production method reminds of the craft of a cooper (bucket): a container is produced by repeatedly assembling the same wooden segment.
The accessories are conceived for sorting or storing in the office and kitchen or as a decorative element for living.
