Matteo Pontevivo


Stool made from a single block of aromatic cedar. Its sinuous shapes are reminiscent of a wrapped candy. The products are made from completely natural wood, hand-finished without the addition of any treatment. Movements, cracks and changes in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic characteristics of these items and result from the natural settlement and diverse environmental conditions.


Matteo Pontevivo


He was born in 1986 and he is living in Bologna. There were two experiences that inspired his idea of design: have attended from early age the city of Florence and discovering the world of boyscouting. From the first one he learned the beauty of the forms, the arts and the history, from the second one the love for the nature and the civic need to leave the world better than how he found it. He has attended the University of Architecture of Ferrara, he loves photography, 3d graphics and he is an avid video game player.
