Bitta is an ­urban seat, inspired by the traditional bitts located along the lagoon of Venice. The project incorporates both in its form and function the essence of that element: the possibility to transform a movement into stasis. The structure is made of two principal parts: a portion of worn-out briccola, shaped to create the seat, and a steel base that appears in three different heights according to the human activities carried out in the city environment.
