Concept

According to alcarol's idea of environmental cross-section, the pieces of Bricola Collection re-use and gives new life to Oak poles recovered in the Venice Lagoon. During the years in the canals, these poles are subjected to unremitting  labour of lagoon molluscs and atmospheric agents that carve and sculpt the wood, so that each piece is unique. Using a patented and elaborated resination process, alcarol preserves intact the natural and peculiar live edges, filling the gaps and capturing the underwater air bubbles that bring the wood back to the original look and conditions.  At the same time, the natural wood surface on the section planes is not not covered by resin, in order to guarantee a different experience of touch and sight, and to give their essential characteristics: warmth and matt porosity from natural wood, elegance and evocative transparency from the resin.
