Rushes from the canna indica plant were woven in a checkered pattern between the wooden frame, which is available in ash or oak.
"Rushing a chair is like a sport, so the artisans say," said Miniforms.
"A Pelleossa seat takes an hour and a half, about the same time as a football match, but instead of feet running around a field, here it is the hands that do the work."
Two makers work on the rushing simultaneously, passing the material back and forth.
"The energy is palpable," added Miniforms. "The weave is built up with a rapid, regular rhythm. Rushing has strong physical connotations, and if you don't wear gloves, it will leave marks on your hands."
This traditional method creates a chair that will last for decades. Pelleossa is also available in a version with armrests or as a simple stool.
