‘naturally furniture collection’ by alexandra gonçalvescabinet



leaves and stalks can live for a long time after the plant completes its circle of life. even if in a dried plant the bright colors disappear – the beauty remains in its structural details. lunaria, a common garden plant, forms seed pods which then flake away revealing silver disks at the end of its life-cycle. the fragile constitution of the flower holds a thin white skin – which is reflected in the production of the ‘naturally collection’ by berlin-based designer alexandra gonçalves.


the furniture series is comprised of a delicate black stainless steel structure, which creates the shape of each piece. the combination of wood and a white lacquered metal sheet gives the function to each object – a cabinet, a drawer, a center table, a lamp and a pouf.
