Dark Skáptō and Brown Skáptō̄
Design: Paolo Criveller
Production: Cosi, Intermac, Mario Berta Battiloro
The project is inspired by the fossilisation of trees - a very rare process compared to that of other micro-organisms. An anaerobic environment, rapid deposition of sands and clays and the passing of millennia form trunks that last forever. Here, we suggest an interpretation of those ancient woods in the knowledge that we must stop deforestation if we are to continue breathing. The concentric rings or splits in the wood are highlighted by a foil of gold leaf protected by a transparent resin.
