The Spiral - Cycle of Life collection includes a table, a side table, a coffee table, and some models. Based on meticulous carpentry work, these creations combine different types of wood (maple wood, mahogany wood, beech, French oak, and American walnut) and form multiple patterns close to marquetry. An attentive eye gradually uncovers the full complexity of this work, which reveals exceptional savoir-faire. Once assembled, the wooden slats combined with brass elements complement one another to create an elegant and contemporary visual rhythm.
As per its title, this series illustrates the three fundamental stages of life of all humans and things: the beginning, a chaotic period where we try to understand which way to go, represented by a mosaic of wood that is both harmonious and disorderly. Then comes fulfillment, when everything finds its place, just like the thin strips of wood that line up and represent stability and order. At last, the rings, like the ones trees draw within their trunk over the years, highlight old age.
