The contents of our homes communicate. Furniture especially. Naturally, there are no words involved theirs is a communication that comes from the materials they are made of. Colours, surfaces and materials generate sensations and responses, and it is through this process that objects can speak to us. Wood, in particular, sends out positive and instantly recognizable values, rooted in the past but highly contemporary. It has the timeless capacity to inform, to tell the observer about the world and about nature. Wood tells of our origins. More than simply a material, it is a veritable cultural archetype with roots deep in the history of man made articles. Wood transmits a feeling of tranquillity, of inner strength. Its soul has been interpreted in so many forms, but this is a material that can always tell the story of people and progress, a fact that makes it forever modern, always abreast of its times.
