Set of Fishes made in italian walnut and cedar wood that keep their scent over time.
Single item dimensions: 16 x 5 x 6,8 cm
The idea behind this project is to revive something that grandparents used to make for their grandchildren: wooden toys, hand-crafted at home, ecological toys, which with time take on an unforgettable sentimental value. Livo is a freshwater fish: a carp. Its form is clean, smooth and organic. It comes in the warm tones of cedar wood, which keep its scent over time. Parè is a freshwater fish: a perch. Its form is clean, smooth and organic. It comes in the warm tones of walnut, which keep its scent over time.
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. Livo is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy. Parè is a frazione of the comune of Colverde in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy.
