    Hillashamia - Wood casting

  • Hsiuchen Chang

    Israel-based product designer Hilla Shamia creates amazing things combining wood and metal. Her furniture collection is made with the method she calls wood casting. The molten aluminum is encased and moves through the natural tree trunk. Wood casting is made from a whole tree trunk that enables to preserve the natural form of the piece while still having distinct boundaries in its creation. Molten aluminum is poured directly onto the wooden the surface which burns the exterior.

"Linger A Little Longer" Table by Jay Watson, uses a thermochromic finish to respond to the heat of objects and people, bringing to light the impact of the user on his furniture. Israel product designer Hilla Shamia has created a fantastic series of furniture blending aluminum and wood. There 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.
