Stool made from a single block of scented cedar with its sculptured shape inspired by the animal world. The products are made from completely natural wood and hand-finished without the addition of any treatment. Movements, cracks andchanges in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic characteristics of these items and result from the natural settlement and diverse environmental conditions.
