CLESSIDRA OUTDOOR

Cedarwood garden stool

Manufacturer Riva 1920

design by
Clessidra Collection
CLESSIDRA (hourglass) is a product born out of Mario Botta’s fertile imagination and wit. The stool is carved out of a single block of scented cedar wood. The solid cedar block, previously squared off, is placed inside a special machine that carves the block around to obtain this highly original shape that almost looks like two hemispheres, one placed upside down over the other. CLESSIDRA stools can also be piled up (upon request): a metal pin can be provided to cross through the centre of each seat so that one stool can be set upon another to create a modern “sculpture” as well as an interesting piece of furniture. 
They are products made of solid wood and are completely natural and hand-finished, without other treatments; further movements, cracks or changing of the wood are unique characteristics of the furniture and are due to the natural settlement and to the different environmental conditions. 

New “Vulcano” finish for cedar
is characterized by a black colour, resulting from an artisan process of carbonization which includes the superficial area of the wood, which becomes anthracite black. Touching it, the surface is rough and milled, the finish is obtained through natural scented oils. This process is called Shou Sugi Ban and is inspired by ancient Japanese techniques, which uses the carbonization of the cedar wooden structures of the house as a natural remedy against moths, mold and fires.
