Type of wood:
Sustainability, natural materials, traditional techniques and craftwork are the most important ingredients of my work. I am a fine woodworker. I love to choose the right timber for each piece of furniture and make the wood and it's story an integrating part of the design. The project I dream of for the future is to design a healthy, creative and diverse working space in Italy, a wood farm with a focus on the whole process “from the tree to the finished product”. I'm interested to work with wood from its source in the forest, in cutting down the trees at the right period of the moon, in milling and then drying the boards in the most gentle way. In the form of furniture the wood get's a second long life. Meanwhile new planted trees get the chance to grow old and close the cycle of sustainability. I'm learning, it's a long term experiment.
