FW series, Felt + Wood, is a family of chairs and accessories handcrafted and made of wood and felt natural, previewed at Salone del Mobile in 2012 at the Fabbrica del Vapore during Auto event in Milan, organized by MISIAD and Alessandro Mendini.
The project designed and self-produced by Thomas Bistacchi (30 years, young milanese designers) and John Pappalardo (30 year old Carpenter and shipwright in Venice), takes hold by a small low stool, then develop into sessions of various sizes: 2 bench seats, seats up to 4 tall stool and temporary seating or dimensions on request.
An essential and minimal structure in wood houses of different natural or colored felt.
The formal rigidity of solid wood boards (beech, oak or larch polished with beeswax) is biased by a contrast of color and matter.
This plot isn't just a hug and a formal game, but also has the function of soft padding to give comfort to the seat, and for small items, books or magazines.
The dialogue between these two absolutely natural and ecological materials, handmade to give added value to the simple seat and to enrich it with a fresh and unusual combinations.
