Scene Mediterranee - Wood Collection

MILAN, ITALY - 2014

In occasion of Salone del Mobile 2014, NCB has worked together with the historical Segato’s artisan lab based in Meda, always inside Scene Mediterranee framework, in order to rethink to some rustic furniture types which characterized the traditional Mediterranean lifestyle register.

Stipo, Matrabanca and Puoio are reinterpretations, with a modern eye, of typical shapes about rituals such as placing, keeping and leaning. This pieces have been designed only using certificated Italian hardwood oak, resuming ancient memory techniques and details; actually most of the parts have been assembled without using metal hardware components but with the help of traditional wooden joints and puzzles.

The essence has been finally treated with a natural precious beeswax, citruses perfumed. The result evokes the purpose of this experiment: supporting alternative consumption types in the furnishing sector, able to better look at the skilled Italian craftsmen, creativity and intellect holders, on which we have the ethical responsibility to invest in order to avoid the loss of our noblest identity.
