The story behind
Phellem is the outermost layer of the tree bark, and the Palette Side Table treatise on its incredibly fascinating biodiversity unveiling a wide range of colors and the most unimaginable textures.
The composition refer to the ancient wood inlay technique, which has always sought the most different woods to get the maximum expressive possibilities, so now alcarol takes advantage of the incredible bark variety with a greater and unexpected potential.
The casual stroller will see all the tree trunks as similar, often dull, monotonous and without any special charm, but the bark of a tree is as individual as a fingerprint and its polymorphism – variety in pattern and color – is simply stunning.
When bark is damaged a natural defense mechanism intervenes, a complex liquid substance hardens in contact with air creating a sort of conservative barrier keeping the vital wood layers away from bacteria, fungi and parasites. It’s the resin.
In a similar way, alcarol preserves the bark of different species covering them with an innovative bio-sourced transparent resin, functional declination of the tree’s natural process.
This flat and clear layer allows you to appreciate the intact botanical variety of the organic matter, frozen as it appears in its original habitat.
