Wood Casting Collection by Hilla Shamia Design Studio's

"The dark coal narrates the love story between the [wood and aluminium], emphasising their initial meeting, outlining a sense of continuation, and maintaining a sense of flow even when the two materials are solid and strong, just like the dynamics between an elderly couple."

I love how full-length tree trunks are split to make beautiful pieces of furniture. The idea of having molten aluminum poured into the moulds to fill the cracks in the wood, makes for interesting patterns and landscapes. I love the look of the burnt edges of the wood and how it creates a joint between the wood and the aluminum.
