MARU is a new urban furniture collection designed by Elena Pelosi and presented at PINETUM Design, an event in which three young designers, selected by prestigious mentors – including Elena Pelosi, chosen by Matteo Thun – exhibited their works in the splendid setting of Villa Gaeta, in the heart of Tuscany, where the historic Pinetum arboretum is located.

With its irregular beauty, the MARU collection, produced by Manetti Gusmano & Figli, tells the story of the material from which it is made, Florentine terracotta. This material has ancient origins and is known for its unique mineral blend that is resistant to weather and abrasion. It is also 100% natural and free of chemicals, composed only of water and clay.
