Serie FW,designed and produced by Tommaso Bistacchi and Giovanni Pappalardo, is a family of stools and benches made of felt and wood
The project starts from a small stool and grows up to various dimensions: tall stool, 2 seats bench, 4 seats bench up to bar stool and temporary seats.
A simple and geometric wood structure holds the weaving of many soft felt bands. The weaving isn’t only a warm embrace or a formal play: it gives stuffing and comfort to the seat and can be used to shelve magazines, newspapers or small objects.
The formal rigidity of the wood planks (beech, durmast or larch) is “overbalanced” by the dialogue with a colorfull and materic use of natural felt.
