Charred Panchetta Three-Legged Bench in Cedar (2022)


W175cm x H35cm x D33cm

Inspired by the regional tradition of the Walser architecture of the Alps, the
Charred Panchetta three-legged bench emblematises a process that rests on authenticity and simplicity. Carved by Riccardo from local cedar grown in the high peaks of the Italian Alps, the bench has been assembled using only timber nails. The cedar gives it a wonderfully balsamic and aromatic scent. It is finished with the ancient Japanese technique of shou sugi ban, the art of preserving wood using fire. The charring both protects the timber and creates a beautiful lustre and smoothness to the wood’s surface. The Charred Panchetta is ideal as a hallway table, coffee table or bedroom bench.

Any movements, cracks or changes in the appearance of the wood are intrinsic.

Price: £2500 (excluding VAT and delivery)

Joy’s work transports us to her ‘other universe’ of a natural world more poetical and fantastical than the one most of us usually inhabit, an enchanted forest of her own devising.
