From intuition to execution
For two centuries Bottega Ghianda has been a true benchmark for artisanal manual skill.
Here we patiently work a variety of different species of precious wood. We devise the joints and solutions needed to bring to life pieces of furniture, works of art and perfectly executed small objects abounding with charm. We know how to impart a special softness to wood, giving its surface unique tactile features.
Over time we have perfected the very vocation that sets us apart today: thanks to the manual expertise of our ebanistas, great names from the fields of architecture, design and art entrust their projects to us in the knowledge that the wood will acquire the exact form they imagined.
Scatola con coperchio scorrevole
A mysterious object, whose opening is revealed only by handling it.
From an original idea by Gae Aulenti for the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Made in pearwood with 45° dovetail joints.
Libreria girevole da tavolo
A cube-shaped desktop bookcase, rotating on a wooden disc.
Cestino a baguettes
A wastepaper basket made of 89 beechwood baguettes connected by 178 spacers.
The geometric rigour and the perfection of execution make the Kyoto both a practical piece and a poetic, refined sculpture.
