Wood has traditionally been a classic material for all kinds of furniture. Contemporary design ideas usually include new materials that resulted from technological researches and evolutions. However, wood is and will always be used by top manufacturing companies for design pieces that have an eclectic style and aesthetic and we have a gorgeous selection of wooden products for your space. Starting with Pila and Pilo that we represent at oikos, Erwan Bouroullec designed them for MAGIS aiming to create light and versatile pieces. Pila has a plywood seat and back supported on an aluminium frame hidden under the seat. Similarly, the Pilo table features aluminum connectors between the wooden legs and its top.
