Product description

Ripples, winner of the 2004 Compasso d’Oro, is made of a laminated composite of five different solid woods. Slide your hand along the surface to enjoy the seamless transitions between walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak, and ash. This enveloping seat, carved with mastery, is hand-finished to produce an elegant polychromatic effect arising from the ductility of the wood. A true icon of international design, Ripples is a bench suitable for home users, commercial environments, and public spaces.

Seat made from plywood using five different types of wood (walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak and ash). Inner metal reinforcement. Plywood legs with edging and walnut veneer (on the outside) and birch veneer (on the inside). Lower panel made from birch plywood, hot-press curved and with beech veneer. Vegetable oil finish. Adjustable feet.
