Product designer Hilla Shamia has created an inspiring way of combining irregularly shaped wood and cast aluminium to produce sleek benches, tables and stools. In this wonderful collection of furniture entitled Wood Casting the designer sees beauty in the imperfection and highlights it for us to take a closer look. Molten aluminum is poured over the logs, inside moulds, causing the top layer of the wood to burn and the liquid metal to float into and fill the natural cracks and crevices in the wood surface.
