at rossana orlandi gallery during milan design week 2014, alcarol presents seven new pieces of their bricola collection. the furniture series demonstrates the value of timber by using historical poles reclaimed from venetian canals. the resulting pieces combine the experience of raw material processing with project research. the preserved oak log sections are encapsulated within blocks of transparent resin, highlighting the intricate voids created by the naval shipworm – a species of saltwater clams. forming networks of perfectly circular holes, the mollusk becomes the protagonist of the process, carving through the inner wood, while maintaining structural integrity.
