A new archetype

Sgabillo, which was designed for the famous HfG of Ulm and immediately became a new archetype: the sort of item that Corbù could have used in the La Tourette monastery. Perfect and up-to-date for nowadays commotion, maybe because it is simply ‘right’.

A geometrically shaped stool, made of natural varnished layered birch, still highly up-to-date, which represents a micro-manifesto of modern and functional way of thinking, natural embodiment of the Bauhaus principles, with which the designer was inspired by during his education and along his professional life.
