I really love the Touch table and seat by designer Carlo Colombo. Carlo designed the set for the company Riva 1920, a 75 year old company that prides itself on craftsmanship and long forgotten manufacturing processes. The unfinished edges of the hardwood top are in beautiful contrast to the brightly colored legs and the industrial feel of the exposed Allen head bolts used.
From Carlo Colombo:
The products designed for “Le Briccole di Venezia” are inspired by the urge to conjoin materials that are cold and of a technical character like steel with materials evoking a warm tactility like the wooden boards made from the “briccole”. The brushed steel structure with its Allen screws showing creates a sort of frame, a housing for the natural element, the wooden table top made from irregularly shaped boards and the chair seats made with the hollow facing upwards.
