Hilla Shamia - Product Designer

This furniture is designed/made by Hilla Shamia, a product designer from Israel. Burnt wood and (molten) aluminum are the materials used. I think this is an extremely interesting mixture of old and new. There is a strange balance between the materials, where it's hard to tell if one dominates the other - this strange pull between it looking futuristic vs. aged - depending on the different angle you look at it. If I could title this it would be the 'bionic wood bench'.
