Named Ciro (Greek for Sun), the piece of furniture showcases the shape of this celestial body in its circular wooden seat that is handwoven in place to a cast-aluminum frame, which holds the entire stool together, using cane strips.

The stool builds a bride between mass-production, which standardizes products and has its advantages like consistency, efficiency, cost reduction and the lead time, and slowly fading prominence of handcrafted goods.
The design boasts impeccable stability and low weight, which makes the stool a perfect choice for both residential and commercial spaces.
