the eco-friendly collection which was presented at isaloni satellite milan 2016, uses single strips of the flexible material to create a series of solid wood pieces. bamboo is fast growing and can yield 20 times more timber compared to other trees making it a renewable alternative to typical wooden sources. the ‘sagano bamboo’ furniture reflects this sustainable vision through each carefully assembled layer, presenting an environmentally conscious, contemporary collection.
