Motta Architecture

The design process starts with the study and research of the material. It is for this reason all the objects are born from the craftsmanship of raw solid wood planks, so as to start the construction of a new story.
The project stands out for its use of this primary material, letting it speak and taming its apparent rigour, only to reveal its versatility, giving each piece a unique character. The design is expressed through accentuated roundness, curves and rounded edges, that find balance in the relationship with angular shapes and interweaving of rigorous lines.
Straw-weaving, an ancient technique that follows the geometry of shapes with precise rules, is researched and used to create the seats and doors of the storage unit. The rope weaves and creates geometric compositions of timeless continuous lines. It has two shades: Havana, a warm natural tone, and Moka, warm black.
