Wood Casting by Hilla Shamia



Here is some very interesting furniture that combines cast aluminum and wood. 'Wood Casting' was created by Tel Aviv based product designer Hilla Shamia. “The negative factor of burnt wood is transformed into aesthetic and emotional value. Preservation of the natural form of the tree trunk within the explicit boundaries. The general, squared form intensifies the artificial feeling, and in the same time keeps the memory of the material.” This design style looks brilliant. Combining both wood and metal together, forming such a perfectly geometric shape and creating such an attractive piece of design, is a very big achievement.
