“Each piece is unrepeatable, every root unique, every result studied, every wood a memory.“
It was in a heavenly place like the Maldives, that I thought of starting to work the woods that I had found on the beach after stormy surges to create unique design furnishings.
A professional diver, always around the world in contact with nature this was the beginning of my personal adventure of working the roots. Walking on the Maldivian beaches it was easy to spot roots and also whole trunks of trees coming from other islands. So I started to model the woods of trumpet trees, ibiscus, and other species that are found only at those latitudes. Resistant and articulated roots, but molded with art and love to give life to interior design works. With time I’ve managed to bring all my works directly from the Maldives to Italy, where I’ve decided to share my passion with other art and design lovers. In Italy I then started to work the roots and the trunks I’ve found on the beaches of the Roman, Tuscan coast and in the Lazio countryside
My works represent the evolution, the “movement” of the root that is transformed from a simple natural element into a unique piece of furniture through the combination of wood, glass and steel. The tree from which each root comes, gives its name to the line of works made with that particular type of wood. Different features that can be adapted to different environments and styles.
