or Call to Order

unPIZZO, a design studio and textile hand­i­crafts labo­ra­tory special­ized in inter­lac­ing for furnish­ing, contin­ues its research on the revival of ancient craft tech­niques with Tramae, a brand new ottoman for B&B Italia. Avail­able in three dimen­sions, this small object full of char­ac­ter stands out for its hexag­o­nal shape, which is rounded until the edges are no longer visible. The surface shows a singu­lar dynamic mix of mate­ri­als and colors that come to life through an exclu­sive weave that rein­ter­prets the tradi­tion of wicker basket making in a contem­po­rary key. At the end of its lifes­pan, Tramae can be disman­tled completely so that each compo­nent can be sepa­rated and disposed of in the best way for each material.

Known for their knot works and home furnishing, unPIZZO is a design studio and textile handcrafts laboratory. In 2014, Agnese Selva and Bettina Colombo, a graphic designer and a scenographer, founded the studio in Cantu, Italy with the wish to revisit the ancient art of the Cantù lace while adding a contemporary flare and functionality. Their recognizable furniture is created by using an interlacing instrument called the “tombolo”. unPIZZO handmake each item, as their products cannot be created using machines or stitching.

After debuting at the Salone del Mobile 2016 with the Tombolo small armchair designed with Piero Lissoni, unPIZZO proposes new realizations of the interlacing technique. This has allowed new collaborations: the presence in the stand of Zucchetti Kos at the International Bathroom Exhibition with the Cascade tapestry tent and a realization with the Palomba and Serafini studio for the Eivissa gazebo by Ethimo, they confirm the great potential of unPIZZO's work, a true link between inimitable craftsmanship and contemporary Italian design appreciated throughout the world.
