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.
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.
We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
Pull-out tables can be very space-efficient as well. You can keep them hidden inside your cabinet unit and pull them out when needed. Then there are also the expandable tables which let you seat more people when required, remaining small and compact the rest of the time. Other ideas can be to save space with seats can be put away or to have a kitchen island extension instead of a freestanding dining table.
