Seat in Lecce’s stone (sandstone) with top in olive wood, handcrafted using exclusively rasps, chisels, hammer and other traditional tools.
Sassi model draws inspiration from the processing of dry-stone walls, which the artist has decided to remember and pay homage to. These small walls, typical of Salento area, are long chains of autochthonous stones set together without the use of any cement or any other binder; an ancient art handed down from father to son that has risked getting lost and that is now being taken up and passed on to the new generations.
Every creation is completely hand-made thereby unique and by refusing the use of stone carving machines we aim at preserving authenticity and history of traditional crafts.
This creation is a collaboration with Kaleidos Cooperative, of which Gabriele Pici has been a partner since 2014.
Kaleidos deals with the restoration of real and personal property of historical and artistic value, reinterpretation and trade of antique, vintage and contemporary furniture as well as interiors’ design and décor.
