Hilla Shamia "Wood Casting"

“Wood Casting” designed by Israeli based product designer Hilla Shamia went on show at Milan Design Week this year.  Designed and made using cast aluminum and tree trunk, the hot aluminum is poured onto wood allowing Shamia to preserve the natural form of the piece while still having distinct boundaries in its creation. The metal material along with the square shape allow a sense of artificiality while preserving the memory of the natural wood material. “The negative factor of burnt wood is transformed into a natural aesthetic and the value of the pieces".
