From the inside to the outside

Presenting the furniture, showing its inner quality, is possible through the deconstruction of some pieces, which have been intentionally broken down and sectioned in order to show the “soul” of this piece of furniture.

The external wood is also inside; the client has the security of having bought a piece of furniture 100% made of solid natural wood.
