Can anyone tell I am working on a project that I need specific wood for? Here is another lovely collection that I found that is on my hit list for my next project. Lately I have been finding the most amazing touches to my interior design tool box.
In the new Legacy collection curated by Piero Lissoni, ALPI focuses the identity of the material at the center of its research, by means of a fascinating production procedure, achieving the objective of reproducing the materic essence of wood, underlining its intrinsic features. This new collection reproduces lost woods like ebony, teak, wengé, rosewood and zebrawood, species that are threatened with extinction, whose use is therefore practically banned.
Strong aesthetic impact, natural durability and excellent levels of strength have increased the demand for these woods over the years, causing serious problems of deforestation and illegal harvesting: ALPI wants to preserve the beauty of the material, reproducing these woods, thanks to the application of the company’s innovative technologies in the world of production of wood-based materials.
