The Bark centerpiece was designed by Michel Boucquillon and Donia Maaoui. Both of Belgian origin, the designers have been inspired by the place where they live: Casa Boucquillon in Tuscany, a place of experimentation, meditation and work where they live at one with nature. As suggested by its name, the item brings to mind tree bark. the fretwork recalls knots in wood, the concave and elongated shape is reminiscent of the structure of a trunk. The result is a highly poetic yet functional object: the perforated part makes it suitable to keep fruit fresh, as if the fruit was in the baskets made of woven branches or bark, used in the country for the harvest. 

18/10 mirror polished stainless steel or steel coated in black or white epoxy resin.

20.25" x 7.75" x 2"

According to the designers:
‚ÄúThe trees in the woods surrounding our house in the hills of Lucca inspired the design of the shutters, which we wanted to be in harmony with the silence of its setting in the wilderness. We did not want just any physical barrier that might offer us peace, shade and coolness. We wanted nature to flow unimpeded into the house so that every small, quotidian gesture and every important decision might occur with an awareness of place, like background music composed of the woods‚Äô smells and muffled sounds, of light and shadow.‚ÄĚ
