alcarol recover discarded pieces of logs from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains and preserve the natural bark surface with their native populations of plants, which are embedded in a resin resembling the water that generated their life.
The design engages with the alcarol’s concept of environmental cross-section. By filling the gaps with resin, alcarol achieves a new functionality with the poetic choice to freeze time at the end of the material’s cycle and giving it a new life before it goes to waste.
The section planes – through touch, sight and olfaction of different materials – allow to transcend the ordinary perception of a place.
