Hilla Shamia, an Israeli designer has created a process for creating furniture that will grab your eyeballs and force you to gaze into its awesomeness.
Shamia cuts logs to fit a mold and then pours molten aluminum in along with the wood. Not only does this darken the wood and allow some of the aluminum to seep into the cracks of the wood, but it also makes for a solid piece of furniture that is the epitome of contrast. Warm and cool, shiny and matte, smooth and textured – these pieces of furniture have it all.
There isn’t much I can add to this post. Hilla’s pieces speak for themselves.
