    ARBOREUS
    March 2015
    Arboreus, our new bench/installation for a private client

    We are happy to introduce you to Arboreus, a bench/installation in Ash and american walnut solid wood and steal structure for the seat
    Like tree branches Arboreus embraces the entrance wall of a private home. It develops on the ceiling and expands sideways forming a niche for the dog’s home, becoming a complex and harmonious installation inspired by natural forms. Custom built for a Rome apartment and inspired, on the customers demand, by Reinoso’s “Spaghetti bench”, Arboreus required two months of intense experimentation on wood bending and one month to build and assemble it.

    Look at the pictures on our blog:  rotalab.wordpress.com - Here a video of the backstage: https://vimeo.com/118966945

    SOURCE, Self-made Design in Florence
    September 2013
    From 12th to 19th September we will be at Limonaia di Villa Strozzi for SOURCE, the event dedicated to the self made design

    SOURCE, Self-made Design in Florence, 40 Italian and international designers, workshops and events

    From 12th to 19th September, at Limonaia di Villa Strozzi in Florence, there will be Source – Selfmade design: 8 days dedicated to the self made design (www.sourcefirenze.it) with an exhibition where there will be 40 Italian and international designers and also workshops, events and seminars.

    Source focuses on objects and creations and also works of designers who directly invent and realize their products creating new scenarios between creativity and production. A path far away from industrial production – but to which the industry should give credit - that rediscovers the handcraft creations with a look to the future and the new technologies

    12-19th September 2013 | Limonaia Villa Strozzi – Florence | Italy (Via Pisana, 77 – Firenze)
