When at Canada Blooms check out the Piega Benches that will be in the Parklane Speakers Area located in Hall B, near the presentation room.
Piega Collection (benches)
The Piega (fold) collection is a family of furniture made in solid walnut and ebonized with a steel wool and vinegar solution to give each piece a natural dark appearance. This colouring compliments the figure of the wood and the shaping of the form. The stools and benches are designed with inward tapered legs to imply delicate qualities that act nicely with the playful application of seating. Corners of a selection of legs are sliced off to adhere to the source of inspiration: folding, creases, and qualities of paper and pliable materials. The polyester wrapped elastic cord for the seating is done in a variety of colours and provides comfortable support. Each piece is finished with danish oil for indoor application and a water resistant finish for outdoor use.
