Hilla Shamia: Wood Casting

In Hilla Shamia’s Wood Casting seating collection, two unlikely materials bond together creating a marriage of textures, colors, and densities. When the molten aluminum is poured into the mold surrounding the tree trunk, an essential characteristic is created: singed wood. The resulting effect elevates the final product from a haphazard pairing of materials to a beautifully bonded cohesion of two otherwise ordinary elements.

From Hilla Shamia: Furniture combining cast aluminium and wood. The negative factor of burnt wood is transformed into aesthetic and emotional value by preservation of the natural form of the tree trunk, within explicit boundaries. The general, squared form intensifies the artificial feeling, and at the same time keeps the memory of the material.
