Muzzle is characterised by a simple game of joints, in which the simplicity of the design allows the assembly of different pieces refer to primary and intuitive construction system, without the use of any kind of glue or metallic piece.
The child thus acquires a predominant role in the puzzle assembling, without any limit. The furniture is not identified as an “untouchable” object, on the contrary it’s thought to be transformed, is prepared to be used and consumed over time.
All parts of Muzzle are produced through laser cutting of different materials, derived from wood, 100% recyclable, from sustainable management certified forests as MDF, OSB, Valchromat, multiwall and doka, material used in formwork for concrete construction.
All these materials are treated with beeswax, a natural finish, carefully applied by hand.
