“[…] a more rigorous, actual technical rationalization would have destroyed the memory elements of it […]” – Achille Castiglioni

Camilla is a remake of the traditional nineteenth-century park bench. This foldable version is featured by the continuity of materials between the seat and backrest. The supporting structure maintains the original essence and form, already strictly functional and minimally decorated.

At the backrest and seat, stratified melamine HPL replace the hardwood slats, preserving the grace and elegance of the object while adapting to the form of an human body, without any need for cushions.

"[...] una più rigorosa, attuale razionalizzazione tecnologica ne avrebbe cancellato gli elementi di memoria. [...]"

Achille Castiglioni
