Product designer Hilla Shamia created a new kind of furniture that blends an industrial vibe with a homey cottage feel, each piece is made of Aluminum casted molten around dry lilac wood logs bonding them into a single organic element with a heart warming appeal. Wood Casting is on show during the Milan design week 2012.

The designer describes that: “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”.

    I do wonder how this will react to changes in the environment; like temperature or moisture. Since metal and wood have different properties.
