Etchi is a simple plywood module with a strong identity. Its name derives from the letters E-T-C-H-I, that can be “read” in its outline. A single module can be used on its own as a small sofa/bedside table or as a stool. Newspapers, magazines, and even a laptop can be stored in the two compartments to the sides of the central structural
element. Because of the dropping sides, whatever is placed in the compartments will hold upright.Alternatively, several modules can be assembled to form a bookcase.

From The Designer:
Tuttotondo is about designing functional furniture, homeware and lightappliances with a twist in the tail, simple objects that look familiar and yet, different. Tuttotondo is an Italian word borrowed from the Fine Arts. It refers to
sculpture and means full-relief, i.e. something that can be viewed from all angles, that is three-dimensional, complete. The word is also used metaphorically to mean well-rounded, multifaceted, and is a perfect synthesis of the spirit of the house, the idea being that the design process should have consideration for all aspects of an object, and that good design should encompass them all. This is why the products designed at Tuttotondo tend to have a quirky
side to them, but never at the expense of their functional use. They aim to provide simple and effective solutions that are innovative and playful as well as practical, low-tech, and ergonomically sound.
