Manzoni Pietro orange low fruit bowl 34cm
Manzoni Pietro is a family-run company in Bergamo, Italy, specialising in handmade woodware.
High quality hardwoods are used and each item is hand finished and firebranded 'M'.
New additions to the range are fruit and salad bowls in a striking range of colours, and a large multi-colour banded bowl reminiscent of postmodern designs by Ettore Sottsass and the Memphis group.
The water-based varnish finish gives the simply shaped wooden bowls and platters a particularly lovely sheen.
The Pietro Manzoni & C.snc, Bergamo house specializing in artistic works of wood, can be considered a typical family business: in fact founded in 1955 by Pietro Manzoni; currently is led and managed by the collaboration of three of his eight children, who bought his father's passion and love for woodworking.
