Designer Hilla Shamia creates gorgeous custom furniture that seamlessly combines solid pieces of wood and cast aluminum. The casting process involves directly applying molten metal to the wood, creating intricate aluminum inlays and beautifully burnt wood. Shamia’s work is available at two design stores internationally: Asufa Design in Jaffa, Israel and Entratalibera in Milan.
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.
