Design : Toyo Ito
Ripples, winner of the 2004 Compasso d’Oro, is made of a laminated composite of five different solid woods. Slide your hand along the surface to enjoy the seamless transitions between walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak, and ash. This enveloping seat, carved with mastery, is hand-finished to produce an elegant polychromatic effect arising from the ductility of the wood. A true icon of international design, Ripples is a bench suitable for home users, commercial environments, and public spaces.
