Mop is the second life of a valuable material: wood. From wood machining and veneer making scraps, a new piece of furniture defined by two elements: the shelf and the support. The longitudinal edges are rounded, the short sides are shelves completed with solid shaped wood. The wood essences follow one upon the other, creating fanciful chromatic effects.

Naturally, that wood was noble wood, because veneering was always done with the choicest woods. And it had, as you might say, the voice of authenticity. The interplay of the various woods was lovely.
