About This Project

2011 design Viola Tonucci


The used material is folded as in the Origami art: through this gesture, we are able to create and engrave its shape.

Mao comes in Fabric, full-grain leather or in frosted leather. Mao gained a honourable mention at the Young&Design contest, Milan, in 2011.
