Turbante Storage Ottoman
Design: Alessandro Scandurra.
Store your treasures (or naughty indulgences) in plain sight with these meticulously constructed storage ottomans, made with vegetable dyed saddle leather, produced without the use of chemicals. The ottomans contain hidden wheels which allow them to be easily moved, while the cleverly fitted lids open to reveal spacious interiors, containing a removable bottle organizer and serving tray.
Ottomans are constructed using only "first flower" leather, from the best producers in Germany, Holland, France and Switzerland, and tanned using ancient methods in Tuscany (in the villages located on the hills at the border between Florence and Pisa).
Leathers are slow tanned using extracts from Chestnut and Mimosa trees, then softened with animal fats in wooden barrels, air dried, refined with natural dyes, and polished with amber stone. The result is a tactile material that, when placed in the expert hands of leather artisans, produces objects possessing truly unique characteristics straddling the ancient and the modern worlds, and which are destined to change in appearance over time, getting better with age.
Hand made in Italy.
