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.”
The names for all of Internoitaliano’s objects are a tribute to minor Italians towns and villages, those that are rarely celebrated, but nonetheless are just as real and representative of a suffused and authentic national identity. Cave is a town and comune in the Latium region of Italy, 42 kilometres southeast of Rome.
Mario Scairato lives and works between Milano and Paestum, the city where he comes from.
He graduated in Industrial Design at the IUAV/Università della Repubblica di San Marino in 2011. From 2012 che collaborates wih Giulio Iacchetti as a product and graphic designer, developing projects for Nike, Savinelli, Comieco, Nodus, Niasca Portofino, Surfer’s Den. From 2015, as a freelance, he designed for Alessi, Bear, Cotto Manetti, Internoitaliano, Moleskine.
