TECH WOOD Collection

Alberto Meda, 2007-2021

The TECH WOOD collection of chairs, with or without arms, recalls the material essence of the Setes bench, which won the “Una panchina per Milano” (A bench
for Milan) contest in 2005.
Made with slats of teak wood or heat-treated ash-wood on a die-cast aluminium frame, the products of the Tech Wood collection are wear resistant and pleasing to the touch.
Ideal for open spaces, terraces and gardens, the products that make up the entire family add solidity and attention to detail to the outdoor landscape.
