FUORISALONE 2014 | I TIPICI COLLECTION
The first furniture collection of SCENE MEDITERRANEE was realized in partnership with Segato Brothers from Meda. Their family forge in Brianza has been working together with famous Italian designers, such as Zanuso, Frattini, Magistretti, Mendini, De Lucchi and Scacchetti, for over 40 years, enriching each piece of design with the knowledge of a long-standing wood tradition.
Marco and Luca Segato had to deal with the development and the construction of unusual types of furniture, which inspiration lays in the vernacular and Mediterranean scenery.
“Matrabanca is the big chest that for years in Puglia has awaken the children curiosity. They were not allowed to open it: the precious box could hold both the leavened bread and the wedding trousseau, which were the main riches jealously safeguarded by the small rural families. The idea of sharing this story led us to build a more contemporary version, enriched with new features such as the trays we put inside”.
The series is entirely made in solid oak, natural citrus wax finished. Beyond Matrabanca, the collection features Puoio, a console, and Stipo, a cupboard.
