Can objects have memory? I believe they can. A sort of spirit, or essence of where they come from, what they have seen along the way. This beautiful introduction of custom made, one of a kind furniture by Manoteca are really functional works of art. Created from vintage objects, repurposed for a new function and renewed life. This ‘Indoor Table’ is made from vintage exterior doors. When closed the surface is smooth, weathered and exudes warmth and comfort. When open, a convenient and handy set of storage pockets appear to keep your thoughts neatly organized. The coolest thing is that the story to be told lives on with each use, scratch and mar. Beauty marks, adding to the object memory.
“I really like the idea that in every object is held somebody’s life. I hope that who is going to possess an object will think about that and take good care of it. Manoteca is a little house in a park, a lab where old and abandoned things are hosted among with recycled materials, reinvented and reassembled. They all are one-offs, handmade and treated with natural paints.” Manoteca Italian Handmade
