Nespoli e Novara


Stool made from a single block of aromatic cedar that is a tribute to a traditional Milanese dish. 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.

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.
