Ferratella captures the traditions and small cultural details of Abruzzo, Italy. The furniture concept was based on Zirè, a traditional game typical of Abruzzo. The game uses a bat to hit a short and tapered stick throwing it far away.
The Ferratella collection resumes the tradition of wood with its traditional geometry and structure. It also throws it far away by adding modernized textures and colors. This establishes a dialogue between an eclectic style and the tradition of woodworking.
