Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
Synthetic wicker was then invented, also in the US. This allowed it to become more durable and resistant to weather and pests. Modern wicker is usually made from rattan and it‘s really versatile. In fact, rattan furniture can fit in nearly any interior, also being very popular outdoors. It‘s appreciated for its casual and airy appearance, usually being associated with manual labor and unique hand-crafted designs.
We suggest letting nature become a part of the interior design. Bring the outdoors in by putting the spotlight on the views and by exposing the windows. Nature adds balance to decors and also complements the dark hues and the simple and straight lines that usually define masculine spaces. A nicely framed view, a potted plant, a green wall or a colorful accent feature allow the decor to avoid looking monotonous and bland.
The Molletta bench is designed by Baldessari and Baldessari and comes in three different sizes. The Platform collection is a series of tables that combine concrete, steel and walnut into simple and robust designs.
