Tubo Chair

September 5, 2008

“Designed to be part of different scenarios, such as breakfast in a garden, dinner on a loft, or even in a bathroom, to help recovery patients to take a bath.
Tubo is a collection of eight tubular furniture made of stainless steel which because of their physical structure perform perfectly in outdoors and indoors situations.

This table and seats were designed with a single line, which has a beginning and an end, and without knowing the difference; it is never broken, giving form to the entire Tubo Collection.”

Open burning of rice straw after harvesting is a common practice in certain Asian country so this actually solves a pollution problem.
