Since I landed on the project, I was interested in the idea of mixing the concepts; technical and primitive, it is from there that I begin to assess different options that could generate a piece without struggling to find more additional materials. The resulting pieces have been solved without the need for any external or additional component, only the organic meeting of two materials. Natural wicker, apparently related to artifacts of primitivism such as arrows, spears or knives and on the other hand a high quality steel, with an exquisite finish through the technique of Florentine Kitchen Knives.
