Inspired by the regional tradition of the Walser architecture of the Alps, the Galtur bench emblematises a process that rests on authenticity and simplicity. Carved from local cedar grown in the high peaks of the Italian Alps, it is assembled using only timber nails. Riccardo then bevels linear grooves out of the timber, creating a dynamic, textural pattern. On each end of the bench he has leaves the beautiful, natural textures apparent from the making process. The cedar gives it a wonderfully balsamic and aromatic scent. The Galtur Bench is a low bench that is ideal as a hallway addition, coffee table or bedroom bench.

Price: £3500 (excluding VAT and delivery)
