TavolinoMono has been planned on a structure derived from a wheelbarrow which, thanks to the presence of a front wheel, is easily movable one from to another. Conceived and realized for the open air TavolinoMono is a garden table, and has a flexible nature. The table can be easily moved by a single person: you can relax outside even in the heat of the day placing the table in the shadow under a tree in so avoiding artificial coverings. TavolinoMono is structured with a large wood plan (197x80 cm), mounted on a galvanized and baking painted iron structure (TGIC Free),a wheel provided with an inflatable air chamber,and a comfortable retractable handle.
TavolinoMono remind the carts of the street vendors, widely spread in all the villages of the Mediterranean until a few decades ago. It's an handicraft product, every TavolinoMono is a unique, marked and identifiable piece. Type A has been finalist to the 2° International Contest “Design Mediterraneo. Mediterranean Design” and statement in the 2011 spring to the Mediterranean Design Awards in Barcellona (ES).
TavolinoMono boarding wood is in oiled ash tree, produced with ethical and social responsibility. The lumber comes from forests where logging is controlled, careful to the process of reforestation and rejuvenation of the forest, certified PEFC. The ash (fraxinus excelsior) is a hard and noble type of wood. The one employed for the TavolinoMono is subjected to a special thermal treatment: at 200°C the molecules of the sugars present in the timber are permanently modified up to a structural level greatly increasing the impermeability. The wood then becomes more resistant and less subject to swellings and dimensional shrinking, remarkably limiting the development of fungi and decayng. The planks used for TavolinoMono are perfectly finished up and have an excellent dimensional stability (density 670Kg/m3, hardness of 800N). To avoid the superficial oxidation of the wood, one or twice a year, oiling is recommended (1 oil pot is included). The planks have been fixed to the frame of TavolinoMono with inox steel screws, with insert torx to secure a perfect hold, avoiding any imperfection.
