FOLLOWING THE TIDE
This collection is inspired by the lagoons and cenotes in the state of Quintana Roo in Mexico: the movement of the tide and the change in topography reveal different materials shaping the intersection of earth and water. "Following the Tide" is an explosion erupted from the circular nucleus, dispersed into crushed Forest Green marble and aggregates of recuperated brass. It is composed in a pigmented resin on an oxidized bronze base.

IS IT TOO LATE ?
A victim of deforestation, these Lebanese Pine tree trunks were found cut and unused in a felling forest in the North of Lebanon. They were recuperated and given a new life by serving as the base of this dining table. The table top is 2 cm thick and carefully hand-crafted to chamfer diagonally the edges of 5 mm, which make it seem lightweight and flowing.
The collection entitled "Is It Too Late?" is a metaphor emphasizing on the importance of the preservation and growth of our Heritage through reinforced trunks dipped in chrome.
