Our furniture is made of used wood or objects which we have collected in the region around Bergamo. They come from workshops, abandoned farmsteads or discarded furniture. Pigments, waxes and oils give the wood colour and structure and emphasise its natural texture and grain.
The wood remains as natural as possible. The surface is sanded and then structured with steel brushes.
A natural wax from citrus oils provides a smooth, protected surface. The wood retains its natural colour and smells wonderful!
The beeswax used here is made by us in our own workshop – according to a recipe from the Italian painter Cennino Cennini in the 15th century. It contains beeswax, turpentine and linseed oil.
The wood is lightened using white colour pigments in a way that retains the natural structure of the wood.
Brushing the white colour pigments creates a washed look.
Also provided with a white pigment, but brushed more.
With white pigment, almost fully brushed.
With white pigment that is blurred using a special technique.
Fired and then brushed and waxed giving it a very dark colour that’s close to black. The grain nevertheless remains clearly visible.
