With Grumetto i wanted to portray the other side of rock, the one capable of expressing a more sensitive and introspective nature through the use of soft, enveloping and independent forms.
Busnelli has always stood for quality and innovation In Elena Salmistraro’s eyes. It’s almost a founding element of Italian design and a symbol of a totally distinct, new, fresh, revolutionary and visionary look. What struck her most about the Busnelli concept was the courage and conviction to do things well, the desire to start over with a clear direction, a ground-breaking, alternative vision. Elena Salmistraro chose to join the Busnelli collective because both shares the same vision: “It’s like when two people are looking in the same direction and can and must try to travel the same stretch of road together. I am very happy that we can take this journey together.”
The occasional table serves not only as a practical support surface, but also a functional link between the other elements: Grumetto is in fact made like the precious chain of a jewel, with the table taking on the aesthetic value of the latch. When the product’s covering is designed in a single finish, the occasional table can be dressed in any fabric and colour.
The covering, specially designed for this product, is a very high quality fabric manufactured from carefully selected white plastic bottles, which are then processed to make the yarn look as similar as possible to the natural one.
