It seeks to capture the unpredictable and dramatic encounter between the natural elements of wood and metal. It has been featured in major international design magazines such as Wallpaper, Dezeen, Viewpoint, Financial Times, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest and Cosmopolitan, and has been included in major design shows such as London Design Week, Milan Design Week, Ambiente, Frankfurt, and Pitti Filati, Florence.
