Manetti x Interno Italiano Cave is an informal terracotta stool, designed for outdoor spaces. The choice of a natural material like clay, shaped to become terracotta, and the completely manual workmanship based on the ancient production technique of orci – jars used in ancient times to store foodstuffs and wine – have inspired the designer Mario Scairato to develop “an object that can exist in symbiosis with nature, tamed or otherwise, but above all can take on charm, ageing and freely braving the elements.” Available in either Naturale or Tobacco terracotta.
The Manetti family has been producing terracotta for eight generations. Located in Ferrone, Italy, they produce exceptional quality terracotta tiles in strict compliance with the ancient traditions of Impruneta. The experience they have acquired in three centuries combined with the uniqueness of the clay used results in a material with distinctive characteristics in colour, resistance and robustness.
