The Undergrowth Collection is a series composed of side tables and stools made from a combination of wood and resin. The logs used by alcarol to create these pieces are retrieved from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains and they are cast in resin together with their bark and native plants. This way their beauty is preserved and immortalized to be admired and appreciated in the future.
Every furniture collection and designer piece is special and unique in one way or another. Not all, however, are as priceless as the Camus series. This is a collection that preserves and promotes a heritage of extraordinary craftsmanship and which is meant to be appreciated for its artistic value and for the concept it represents. The furniture pieces in this series inspire people to find something beyond the geometry that defines them. In order for these designs to be fully appreciated and understood they need to be seen, touched and felt.
Kaspar Hamacher is a Belgian designer who uses wooden logs to create unique stools. The method used to get the desired result is rather unusual. The stools are created by setting a log on fire. The burnt away sections shape the log until it finally starts to look like a stool. The bark is also stripped from the log and the result is a clean and artistic form. The project is called Ausgebrannt which means “burnt out” in German.
