BrogliatoTraverso studio has continued to amplify its celebrated family, inspired by classic Windsor chairs, this time in two ultra-light versions: Newood Light chair and Newood Light stool.
The Newood Light chair reflects all of the characteristics of the original design, but is much lighter in weight, due to the elimination of the 8 rods in the backrest.
Newood Light Stool, a new item for 2019, is available in two heights and is made of solid ash wood, in the same tones as the other seats in the collection.
Both the stool and Newood Light chair can now be embellished with the addition of a removable seat cushion, made of padded plastic upholstered with the fabrics and leathers in the collection.
Both hold a degree in architecture from the University of Venice, Alberto Brogliato and Federico Traverso founded the BrogliatoTraverso design studio after undertaking journeys and experiences that allowed them to enrich their personal and professional backgrounds, such as the exploration of the art of glassmaking in Murano and traditional ceramics in Japan.
The philosophy that defines the BrogliatoTraverso studio can be summarized by the claim: “NO TIME, NO SPACE”.This highly personal design method captures their desire to create objects that are atemporal and acontextual. The two professionals work through subtraction, creating works that are rich with details that are nearly imperceptible.
