Every constructive detail of the Tessa bench is a clue to the great complexity that lies behind its seeming simplicity. The kind of simplicity which stems from the ingenuity and hand-craftsmanship inherent to the concept of the product itself.
The structure is made entirely of solid ash or turned Canaletto walnut. The traditional joinery requires expert craftsmanship and gently exalts the natural texture and feel of the wood. An ancient art that dates back to Italian rural tradition.
The Tessa family includes an armchair, ottoman, bench, and a coffee table with marble top, available in a number of types of marble. The tabletops from the outdoor version range from Beola Argentata, Pietra del Cardoso, Lava and Porphyry.
