Wekendo presents the new Citterio product: Wood_Wall is an office partition wall that makes wood the primary and characterizing material.
It is not simply a product, not just a partition system made up of materials other than those ordinarily used. Wood_Wall is the synthesis of a new approach through which Citterio begins a different way of setting up work environments; it is the expression of a path of rediscovery of materials and their essence. Attention to material represents the need for authenticity beyond any simulation of finishes and colors possible today.
Citterio begins a renewed research on the materials of each building element, enhancing the real temperatures of each, the colors, the ever-changing scents, overcoming the counterfeits possible with modern industrial technologies. The return to wood is not inspired by nostalgic references to craftsmanship, everything is animated by criteria of modernity and attention to quality. Craftsmanship is a reference to be inspired by, handing down attention to materials and their specificities. Ancient techniques give way to modern technology. Lamellar laths replace solid solids, improving the mechanical performance of each element.
CNC machining shapes and drills, overcoming the limitations of manual chisels and planes. Essence is enhanced through new interpretations. This careful research changes the design approach, bringing architecture and industrial design back to substantiate authentic stimuli and sensations inspired by the true nature of materials.
