Concept

Phellem is the outermost layer of the tree bark, similar in many ways to our own skin.
This collection treatise on its incredibly fascinating biodiversity offering any range of colors and the most unimaginable textures.
The bark’s main function is always to protect the arboreal body keeping the vital layers away from temperature and external stress: when something damages it, a complex liquid substance hardens in contact with air creating a sort of conservative barrier keeping the vital wood layers away from bacteria, fungi and parasites. It’s the resin.
In a similar way, alcarol preserves the bark of different species covering them with an innovative bio-sourced transparent, allowing you to appreciate the intact botanical variety of the organic matter, frozen as it appears in its original habitat.
The interlocking compositions refer to the ancient wood inlay technique.
