Ligne Roset, 2014
The collection Alburni comes from a lapsed wood technology: the transverse cut of the trunk. When we saw for the first time the thin sections obtained with these machines we immediately amazed by the emotional and unusual effect that they have. Few tenths of mm of a thick wood, so thin that the light filters through, light like a sheet of paper, delicate like a parchment.
In this way wood acquires value again as a precious material. In just a few inches of the trunk, hundreds of tables, each one different, can be extracted. The imperfection is not a defect but it becomes value.
