It’s curious because head-on Archetto seems a furniture very rational because it see as a cross. But when it’s seen on another point of view, we notice that the suport is a curve more proper to the Nordic organicism.

Forever disposed to collect your belongings.

A piece that borns from the junction of two arcs, where an arc crosses vertically and the other horizontally, forming a cross. Beneffited this way the horizontal plane as shelf, and the vertical plane as support, anchor and angular.
