Habito Dimora – DeskEmail enquiry about Habito Dimora – Desk
Habito Dimora – Desk is made as a single block using wood with vertical grain. It is manually finished on all sides using plane and gouge. The entire manufacturing and finishing process is carried out manually in Habito’s workshop. The wood used for this piece is Juglans Regia -common Italian walnut; not dried but “raw”. This wood belongs to the Latin tradition of furniture-making and features an extremely compact fibre that can however be worked without too much difficulty; it is therefore highly suitable for household items. Over time the wood hardens and becomes extremely resistant and oxidises slightly to take on a progressively warmer amber colour. Made wholly in wood with vertical grain, this walnut table/desk gives the user the pleasure of working in a situation of importance, but at the same time constrained, natural and human.
