Castagno18 - the bench
A bench made exclusively with wooden joints without the use of glue or screws. It is made up of four elements fixed together thanks to dovetails joints carved into the masse. Its design is characterized by a very austere line, a few frills, only a fine sheet of chestnut laid on two monoliths.
The production chain of the entire Castagno18 collection is very narrow: from cutting wood to creating furniture, everything is done in Ticino within a few kilometers. The chain thus conceived enhances the local wood, and the wealth that derives from it remains for the small working realities of the canton of Ticino, helping them not only economically but also in building a cultural identity specific to the region in which they are located.
