The Vegetable Collection was born in Cadriano from the meeting of Luca Pennini and Nicola Caracciolo, founders of TLG Legno, with the designer Vito Nesta.
Following a meeting with Vito Nesta and the experience gained by working with wood, Pennini and Caracciolo decide to create a new brand called Cadriano, from which the first “Vegetable Collection” was born.
The project aims at a maximum accuracy of style in the balance between skill, art, passion, dedication to the product that yearns for beauty. For more than ten years the company has been choosing quality in all its expressions, in materials, production and workmanship at the top of finishing. Living in beauty. An expression that means research, depth, passion, commitment to conceive a piece of furniture to live over time.
“Collaborating with TLG Legno was a special opportunity for me. I met Luca Pennini and Nicola Caracciolo when they invited me to the company to see what they were working on. I found an overflowing passion and enthusiasm, accompanied by a technical knowledge that only the best Italian artisans have.
We immediately started talking about an ongoing collaboration on the theme of living in beauty and the quality of materials and production processes. Thus was born the Cadriano brand, from the country where the factories are located. An unequivocal name that fixes the company's roots in a territory where woodworking is a millenary tradition.
Shortly after the Vegetable Collection was born, I wanted to give this first project the primordial force of nature by designing furniture whose legs, a strongly characterizing element of the design, are nothing more than young stems of plants in the making. Twisted and twisted in the act of growing, but strong and elastic like the best hunting bow. Produced in oak, these pieces of furniture come in different shapes and sizes, from the small acorn, a companion table, to Mattush, a large quadrangular sideboard to Veritas, the symposium table, where all the truths come to light.
Collaborating on this first project with Cadriano was a very rewarding experience, the aptitude of Luca Pennini and Nicola Caracciolo to innovate in the wake of tradition was instrumental in the realization of a project that was also complicated from many points of view. However, the result impressed us very much and we are already fantasizing about the next project ”.
