The challenge was to design a product that
will be visually as clean and pure as
possible, without overthinking the form and
overusing the technology, while still having a
distinctive and recognizable character.

The modern production methods allowed the
classic wooden joints to be reinforced just in
the right places, keeping the chair as light
as possible, but stil stable and functional.

The Neva collection was greatly inspired by
natural forms and the simplicity and elegance
of wood in nature. For years has wood been
'forced' into geometrical shapes, because this
was the only way to accomplish larger volumes
in serial production, and organic forms have
been reserved for artisanal carpenters.
Modern technologies such as cnc carving have
made it possible for more complex forms to be
introduced into serial production, and in the
spirit of the Artisan company the production
of the Neva collection is an elegant dance of
modern technology and artisanal handcraft
which are unavoidably overlapped.
