alcarol Captures Nature In Avant-Garde Furniture

Literally.

Conceived by Andrea Forti & Eleonora Dal Farra, alcarol focuses on preserving the natural materials in their unusual atmosphere. To do so, the experimental design duo process mixed materials with avant-garde techniques to make functional design pieces and effectively give new life. Dubbed Undergrowth, the unique console table and stump stool sees moss and lichen-riden logs recovered from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains preserved in water-like resin. You’ll notice the organisms still “grow” in their native population of plants and vegetation.

Be sure to check out other unique works from alcarol, including Fisheye and Dolomyth.
