Savannah | Tiago Curioni
A clump of grass, a bush, which moves in the wind and envelops its inhabitant.
This was the inspiration for creating the Savana armchair, made in Wicker, traditional and natural material of the Brazilian furniture, widely used in the 70's and 80's, but whose origin goes back to the time of ancient Egypt.
Massive and totally handmade, without any use of metal structure or wood, the Wicker branches are curved in the water and then glued one by one, forming the "tree trunk" that serves as the base; And the backrest, which projects upwards in the shape of a shell, giving protection and shelter to the user.
