Simone Cappello


Stool made from a single block of aromatic cedar that reproduces the classic pattern of Gruyère with the classic holes of this cheese. 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.


Simone Cappello


Simone was born in Giussano (MB) in 1997. He grow up in the family’s company which produce wooden furniture for outdoor and, as a natural continuity, he chose to specialize in the wooden sector for his professional future.

Still as a student, in 2013, during his second year of education at CSF ENAIP in Cantù, he participated at “1° competition of ideas for a projectual and technical realization of a cedarwood stool” and he won with the project “Cheese”, show in the International Salone del Mobile.

In spite of the young age he does not miss professional experiences, moreover his enthusiasm and his “desire to do“ will guide this boy to find his path in the world of wood and furniture.

He had a professional stage in an important furniture company and this has allowed Simone to experiment a construction dimension, thus improving his design capabilties.

He will continue studying in the furniture branch.
