Creation knows no boundaries, whether its about planks of wood or packing crates, many designers have crafted beautiful furniture objects out of them all. Designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malbera is no different to creating furniture from shipping crates, yet his farmyard furniture is quite different from the ordinary. Christened ‘Sending animals’, this is a collection of unusual furniture that is sold under the brand name Seletti (Italian Furniture Brand) and are structured like farm animals.
The inspiration behind this collection comes from the absurd idea of transporting or shipping of actual animals from one place or another. To create these extraordinary furniture items, the designer has used the same way that are used to produce shipping crates. Each furniture piece represents a farmyard animal and each of the animals has different sections reminding of the diagrammatic representation of different cuts of meat of that particular animal.
The furniture collection includes:
