A wooden cow sideboard from the 'Sending Animals' range by Seletti.
Irony is a serious thing, if whilst smiling it makes us think. The animal-crate association is fun but at the same time it sensitises us to mankind’s relationship with nature.
This furniture piece represents an absurd image of how the animals are physically shipped. Every visible imperfection is indeed characteristic of the piece, as in order to respect the poetic nature of the original idea, the pieces were made by the same process used for real shipping crates.
Designed by Marcantonio Raimondi Malerla, this cow cupboard can be used to hold a range of items in the dining room or office and is guaranteed to draw attention from guests.
Handmade from spurge plywood.
L225cm x W58cm x H151cm.
