Product description

Creek Bench is made of a CHESTNUT SOLID WOOD with its natural bark surface, preserved in EXTRACLEAR RESIN resembling the water that generated their life. The new alcarol's invisible corner joining ensures the continuity of both material, without visible separations between horizontal and vertical planes, like a single bent piece.

The natural wood surface is not covered by resin on the section planes since alcarol always use a selective wood coating with a matt natural effect.

Product family


For this collection alcarol recovered some discarded logs from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains; then cuts planks, preserving the natural bark surface and live edges with their mosses and lichens, which are encased in a special resin resembling the water that generated their life, while the section planes remain uncovered to give the possibility to appreciate warmth and matt porosity from natural wood.
The project engages with the alcarol concept of environmental cross-section. By filling the gaps with resin, alcarol achieves a new functionality freezing time at the end of the material’s cycle and giving it a new life before it dissolves into the ecosystem.
