Monarchy is a rocking stool that  is designed not to be overturned but at the same time allows the user to escape the dullness of the ultimate stability.

Extract from TOTONKO

“This bowl is meant to enhance the user’s dining experience and awareness through a subtle play on balance. Filling the bowl with food causes the bowl to balance in a standard, horizontal position. As the food is eaten, the bowl slowly rocks back towards the user, making the remaining food more accesible and marking the end of the meal.”

Rocking Chicken

November 23, 2008

Did not indicate the size but i assume not for the violent kid…
“Green chicken: The chicken, a rather unexplored shape, found its place amongst my green dreams. I wanted to portray this common bird as a sensational object by amplifying its characteristics and dimensions, turning it into a modern piece, one of great beauty and utility: a rocking chair. The movement, subtle and constant, would give the object a zoom-like trait, a sense of speed and dynamism. My green chicken had taken on a face, a shape, a place and a function.”

“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.”
