Andrei Munteanu


Andrei Munteanu was born in 1964 in Bucarest, Romania. He studied physics and industrial design. He collaborated with many companies in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Italy. Between his more important projects we can name the Pure Sofa by Tribu, the modular sofa system Bora Bora projected with Piergiorgio Cazzaniga and made by Mdf Italia, the modular sofa system Dhow and the Mould series by Giorgetti and the Radius One cloathes hanger by Radius Design. “I was born and grew up in Romania, initially I concentrated on natural science. I found my artistic identity by searching to connect different influences: the Italian design of ’60 and ’70 years, New Wave, the Japanese architecture and the primitive art. I believe that the design is a kind of art with a substantial difference: the object created becomes a mean to satisfy the primary necessity to be used, produced in series and commercialized”.

data sheet



These articles are entirely made in solid scented cedar wood. Any movement in the wood, little cracks and changes that might occur over time cannot be considered grounds for complaint as they are due not to imperfections in the material but rather to a natural settling of the wood

in reaction to various environmental conditions.
Similarly the possible appearance of marks or little patches of mould on the surface of the product is a perfectly normal reaction by solid wood in particular to prolonged periods of storage in transport packing.

Should such problems occur we ask you to undertake the following actions using the maintenance kit:

1) use the brush supplied to remove any traces of mould.
2) wash the parts previously worked on with water.
3) leave the article to dry in a dry and well aired place.

A typical characteristic of the items realized in solid cedar is the possible leakage of the resin that is naturally contained inside the wood, especially on the bottom of the product. Please be informed that, in order to avoid problems of spots or absorption of resin contained into solid cedar, we kindly suggest You not to locate items in cedarwood on carpets or soft surfaces which do not allow the ventilation of the bottom part of the item, especially in the first months from the purchasing. We suggest to keep them in a dry and good ventilated place.
