Alcarol recovered some old Chestnuts logs from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains and preserve the natural bark surface, which is 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 tree’s life cycle.
In Creek Bench the jagged edges of chestnut wood section planes look each other just like banks, separated by a sinous resin creek: a perfect recall of a Dolomites nature’s view.
