I'm a big fan of Claudio Silvestrin's work: austere but not extreme, contemporary yet timeless, calming but not ascetic, strong but not intimidating, elegant but not ostentatious.

Silvestrin made this macassar ebony Waterside bench-with-armrest in 2001 for Cappellini. The bench is one simple play of proportion. The retail price however is of a different proportion ;-)
